Several injured after vehicle tried to enter NSA campus
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.
