Sev­eral in­jured af­ter ve­hi­cle tried to en­ter NSA cam­pus

Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - NATION+WORLD -

FORT MEADE, MD. » An unau­tho­rized ve­hi­cle tried to en­ter the se­cure cam­pus of the Na­tional Se­cu­rity Agency at Fort Meade on Wed­nes­day morn­ing, spark­ing a con­fronta­tion that left three peo­ple in­jured, of­fi­cials said.

Gun­shots were fired, but of­fi­cials said they did not be­lieve any in­juries re­sulted from gun­fire. Gor­don John­son, spe­cial agent in charge of the FBI’s Bal­ti­more field of­fice, gave no de­tails about who opened fire, but he did say that, pre­lim­i­nar­ily, it looked like all gun­fire was di­rected to­ward the ve­hi­cle.

At a news con­fer­ence out­side the Na­tional Cryp­to­logic Mu­seum, John­son said the FBI was still col­lect­ing ev­i­dence but be­lieves it was an iso­lated in­ci­dent, with no ter­ror­ism con­nec­tion.

John­son said the three in­jured were the driver of the ve­hi­cle, an NSA po­lice of­fi­cer and a civil­ian on­looker. Two oth­ers in the ve­hi­cle were taken into cus­tody and were be­ing ques­tioned, John­son said.
