Fox is reporting a vehicle rammed the gate and that shooting was heard.
Police are on the scene of an incident outside Fort Meade in Anne Arundel County.
From Chopper4, emergency workers could be seen caring for an injured, uniformed man who was loaded into an ambulance.
It’s not clear what connection that person has to the incident, if any. There are two vehicles with damage outside the gate, including a police SUV.
The National Security Agency is investigating the incident.
Fort Meade, a United States Army installation, is home to approximately 11,000 military personnel along with about 29,000 civilian employees, according the military installation’s website.
Appears from the pictures above to have at least one fatality, there appears to be a body covered with a sheet near the door of the black SUV that rammed the gate. Two injured in addition.
Dressed as women who just happened to crash the gate and it’s a local incident? Can’t wait to hear the explanation for this!
Gunfire erupted Monday morning at the gate of the National Security Agency’s facility at Fort Meade in Maryland when two men disguised as women in a stolen car tried to enter, sources said.
A guard intervened and shot at least one of the men in the Ford Escape. A search of the vehicle turned up a gun and some drugs.
The condition of the men in the car was not confirmed. The NSA is a conducting the investigation into the incident, but the FBI was also on the scene.
“The shooting scene is contained and we do not believe it is related to terrorism,” the FBI’s Baltimore office said in a statement. “We are working with the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland to determine if federal charges are warranted.”
It’s not clear why the men were trying to enter the facility, but one senior U.S. official called it a “local criminal matter.”
One bad guy shot, one captured and one guard also injured.
