At least one person reportedly injured in shooting outside NSA headquarters


At least one person has been injured after a shooting at the gates of the National Security Agency in Fort Meade, Maryland, according to a report from the Associated Press.

The details of the shooting, which unfolded this morning, are still unclear, but aerial footage showed a black SUV with airbags deployed, apparently after crashing into concrete barriers. A law enforcement dog could be seen searching the car, and one person was reportedly led away in handcuffs.

The NSA said in a tweet that “the situation is under control and there’s no ongoing security or safety threat.” The agency has not responded to a request for more information.

The FBI’s Baltimore said in a tweet that the incident was “contained.”

The incident is not the first shooting at the NSA complex. In 2015, one person was left dead, and two were injured, in another incident at the the agency’s Fort Meade gates.
