At least one injured, suspect in custody after NSA shooting

Washington, 14 February 2018 (MIA) - Police responded to a shooting Wednesday outside the National Security Agency campus at Fort Meade in Maryland, where authorities surrounded a handcuffed man after a black SUV ran into a barrier, The Associated Press reports. 

Fort Meade garrison spokeswoman Cheryl Phillips confirmed by phone that one person was injured in the shooting outside the base and was taken to hospital.

"NSA police and local law enforcement are addressing an incident that took place this morning at one of NSA's security vehicle entry gates. The situation is under control and there's no ongoing security or safety threat," an NSA statement said.

Later, sources told CBS News that three people had been hurt.

President Donald Trump has been briefed, and the White House offers thoughts and prayers with those who have been affected, spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said. lk/15:37
