FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — The National Security Agency says several people were hospitalized after a shooting outside the agency’s campus at Fort Meade, but no injuries were caused by gunfire.
An NSA statement says a vehicle tried to enter the agency’s secure campus without authorization shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday. The statement also says weapons were fired during the incident.
The FBI is investigating.
Images from local news outlets showed authorities surrounding two handcuffed people after a black SUV ran into a barrier outside the Maryland base.
Earlier, Fort Meade garrison spokeswoman Cheryl Phillips said one person was injured in the shooting and was taken to a hospital.
