At least 3 shot on NSA campus at Fort Meade; suspect arrested

Authorities are investigating a possible shooting involving a SUV at the gate of the National Security Agency Wednesday morning, officials said.

A Fort Meade spokesman confirmed one person had been injured and transported and that a main highway was closed near the facility, a U.S. Army installation about 30 miles (48 km) northeast of Washington.

A black SUV appears to have crashed into white security barriers outside of the National Security Administration in Fort Meade, Maryland.

The NSA said the situation was under control.

An NSA spokesman told local media the area outside America's electronic espionage agency was now secure after a "security incident".

The White House has been briefed on the matter.

The FBI in Baltimore tweeted that it was "aware of the incident" and was sending personnel to respond.

Earlier reports said that as many as three people had been wounded.

There is breaking news of a shooting outside the NSA headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland.

An SUV was seen stopped at the entrance to the key US intelligence facility in Fort Meade, Maryland, northeast of Washington. "We will continue to provide updates as they become available", the statement added. One driver died at the scene after NSA police opened fire on a stolen sports utility vehicle.

In March 2015, two unauthorized people tried to enter with a stolen SUV.

In that incident, the two men in the Ford SUV were dressed in women's clothes "but not in an attempt to disguise themselves from authorities", an Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman said at the time.
