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.

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.
