Federal authorities are investigating a shooting outside of the National Security Agency facility at Fort Meade Wednesday that reportedly left one person wounded.
Fort Meade garrison spokeswoman Cheryl Phillips told the Associated Press that one person was injured in the shooting outside the base and was taken to hospital.
The NSA tweeted at about 9:10 a.m. that the situation "is under control and there is no ongoing security or safety threat."
President Donald Trump "has been briefed" on the shooting, according to White House spokesperson Lindsay Walters, and is offering “thoughts and prayers” and promising to provide updates “as they become available”.
According to a WRC-TV aerial photo, police could be seen surrounding handcuffed man. Close by, was a black SUV with bullet holes through its windshield, which had reportedly crashed into a concrete barrier of the NSA entry gates.
