Man arrested after shooting near National Security Agency

Police investigating 'possible shooting' on NSA campus at Fort Meade

Local fire and police departments said on Twitter they were responding to a possible shooting incident outside the agency's campus in Fort Meade.

A National Security Agency police officer opened fire Wednesday morning on a vehicle at an entrance to the intelligence agency's campus in Maryland, law enforcement sources told CBS News.

The NSA said the situation was under control, advising motorists that a highway leading to the complex was closed in both direction "due to a police investigation".

Meade officials confirmed that the incident happened on the Canine Road gate to the NSA.

One person was injured in the incident at the Maryland military installation, though it's unclear if the suspect was the person taken to the hospital.

This is a breaking news story.

White House officials said that President Donald Trump was briefed on the shooting.

'We will continue to provide updates as they become available, ' the White House said in a statement.

Federal Bureau of Investigation officers from the Baltimore office are responding to the incident.

Just after 8 a.m., NBC4 reported that from its helicopter, police "could be seen surrounding a handcuffed man who was sitting on the ground".

USA Today notes that drivers occasionally take the wrong exit and end up at the tightly guarded NSA gates. The investigation into the attack is now underway. Authorities later said they had stolen a vehicle from a man who picked them up for a party at a motel.
