According to the sheriff's office, a black SUV being pursued by the Florida Highway Patrol breached security about 11:40 am at the main entrance of the resort. Officers fired shots and the SUV raced off. It was pursued by the Highway Patrol and a sheriff's office helicopter.

The sheriff's office said the SUV was later found and the two people were taken into custody. No further details were immediately available.
