Shots fired after crash outside NSA building
Several people were injured early yesterday in a vehicle collision and shooting at the National Security Agency campus at Fort Meade, Maryland. By mid-morning, officials said the situation was under control and the threat was over.
According to the agency, several people were injured, but none were hit by bullets. The shooting happened after a 4x4 ran into a concrete barricade at the base. Police arrested one man, and, according to the Washington Post, one police officer was injured. An image taken from a media helicopter showed the police and fire department outside one of the facility’s secure vehicle entry gates.
The Baltimore office of the FBI said it was aware of the incident and was sending agents to respond. One federal official said that it did not appear to be linked to terrorism.
The White House said President Donald Trump had been briefed.
