DORAL, Fla. – As the man accused of firing at authorities inside the lobby of the Trump National Doral recovers in a hospital, detectives are now focusing their investigation on his Doral apartment, where the 42-year-old had been renting a first-floor unit.

"It's pretty crazy," David Jiminian, who lives in the same building as Jonathan Oddi, said. "I've been here for five years. I have a family. I have a 1-year-old. Definitely crazy."

Jiminian described his neighbor as quiet and normal.

"I saw the cops here last night, but I didn't realize that it was the shooter from yesterday," he said.

While detectives worked into the afternoon, it was unclear if they've recovered any evidence that can explain his motive for the shooting.

"It gets crazier and crazier every day, seeing what's happening," Jiminian said. 

Oddi doesn't have a criminal record in South Florida. According to the Department of Homeland Security, Oddi entered the U.S. in 1989 via a temporary visitor for pleasure visa. 

According to unconfirmed social media accounts, Oddi describes himself as a fitness instructor and real estate investor. It also appears he is in some type of romantic relationship.

A Twitter account believed to belong to Oddi shows that he liked several past tweets from President Donald Trump.

One of those tweets from February 2017 said, "I don't know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy -- yet Obama can make a deal with Iran, #1 in terror, no problem!"

He also liked a tweet from Sean "Diddy" Combs from September that showed support for football players who chose to take a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial profiling.

"I just want to send some blessings and support to all the players in the NFL ... You have a chance to do something really great tomorrow," the post read.
