For the second time this month, the NSA campus in Maryland has fallen victim to violence.
On Monday, there was a shootout after an SUV with two men dressed as women rammed into an officer at the gate at Fort Meade. The gunfire left one person dead, and the other two were seriously injured, one of whom was an NSA agent. They were flown to Baltimore’s Shock Trauma.
The FBI gave a statement following the incident, saying:
“FBI Baltimore is investigating a shooting incident which occurred this morning at a gate at the National Security Agency at Fort Meade just off I-295 in Anne Arundel County, MD. The shooting scene is contained and we do not believe it is related to terrorism. We are investigating with NSA Police and other law enforcement agencies. Our Evidence Response Team is processing the crime scene, and FBI Agents are doing joint interviews with witnesses. We are working with the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland to determine if federal charges are warranted. We have no further information at this time to release.”
