Federal Bureau of Investigation responds to shooting incident at NSA headquarters

Several people were hospitalized after a shooting Wednesday morning outside the National Security Agency campus at Fort Meade, but none of the injuries were caused by gunfire, the spy agency said.

The incident happened shortly after 7 a.m. ET and "weapons were discharged in the course of the incident, which remained under investigation at this time", NSA spokesman Tommy Groves said in a statement.

Why did Steve Kerr let his players coach against the Suns?
Most likely no one is going to say this, but this is borderline one of the most disrespectful things you can do to another team. Iguodala sat in Kerr's chair breaking down the plays to his teammates while Kerr stood a few feet away with his assistants.

An NSA spokesperson confirmed that the situation was "under control", but did not offer any additional details. The AP also reported that Fort Meade garrison spokeswoman Cheryl Phillips confirmed that one person was injured in the shooting outside the base and was taken to the hospital. It appeared that the SUV had crashed into a security barrier and bullet holes could be seen in the vehicle's front windshield. Items apparently removed from the vehicle were strewn on the ground and checked by a police dog.

The NSA released no immediate information, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was sending people to the scene.

In 2015, two men dressed as women tried to ram a stolen vehicle through the gate of the National Security Agency headquarters at Fort Meade. The secretive agency focuses on using technological tools, including the monitoring of internet traffic, to monitor the government's adversaries.

White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement that President Trump had been briefed on the shooting. The vehicle had turned onto an exit road of the campus in Fort Meade, Maryland, northeast of Washington.

But in early 2015, two people were shot at by NSA police when they disobeyed orders outside the heavily secured campus. Officers shot at the vehicle when they refused to stop, killing one of the occupants. The people in the vehicle may have taken a wrong turn after partying and taking drugs, according to news reports.
