Shots fired outside National Security Agency headquarters

NSA shooting

Anne Arundel County police tweeted just before 7:30 a.m. referencing the "possible shooting near NSA", but it said it was not the lead agency investigating the incident.

There has been a shooting outside National Security Agency headquarters in Maryland. A black SUV dotted with bullet holes is stopped by barriers, airbags appear to be deployed and the tailgate is open with objects falling out.

Three people are believed to have been shot outside the NSA campus with a police officer is among those injured in the shooting.

The White House has been updated on situation and the NSA released a statement saying "the situation is under control and there is no ongoing security or safety threat". The Anne Arundel County Fire Department provided assistance and the FBI is investigating the situation. Shots were fired, according to local media and there are bullet holes in the vehicle, including in the front window.

Route 32 near the base was closed in both directions for about an hour but has since reopened.

USA Today notes that drivers occasionally take the wrong exit and end up at the tightly guarded NSA gates. Many other roads in the area are experiencing heavy traffic.

In March 2015, a 27-year-old man died after the stolen SUV he was in crashed outside the NSA.

In that incident, the two men in the Ford SUV were dressed in women's clothes "but not in an attempt to disguise themselves from authorities", an Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman said at the time.
