Suspect wounded, SUV stopped after shooting at NSA gate

Today, government officials said they were investigating an apparent shooting near the National Security Agency headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland, with local media reporting at least one person had been wounded and one taken into custody. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is leading the investigation and there's no ongoing threat, the NSA said in a statement. The vehicle had turned onto an exit road of the campus in Fort Meade, Maryland, northeast of Washington. They also reported that Fort Meade garrison spokeswoman Cheryl Phillips confirmed by phone that one person was injured in the shooting outside the base and was taken to hospital.

An earlier statement from the NSA said the agency's police and law enforcement were "addressing an incident that took place this morning at one of NSA's secure vehicle entry gates".

Earlier reports said that as many as three people had been wounded. WRC said bullet holes could be seen in the vehicle's front window, and several air bags were deployed. The vehicle was at the end of a dead-end lane marked by concrete NSA-stamped barricade blocks on one side and a chain-link fence on the other, near a guard booth and entrance gate, the CBS video showed.

Another statement from the NSA public affairs office said: "At approximately 7am this morning, there was a security incident at one of the National Security Agency checkpoints".

Local television stations reported from helicopters that police surrounded a handcuffed man on the ground. The NSA Police force is now investigating.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone that has been affected".

In March 2015, two people tried to drive their sports utility vehicle through the NSA's heavily guarded gate.

News reports later suggested the two occupants of the vehicle may have been under the influence of drugs after attending a party.
