Shooting Investigation Underway at NSA Fort Meade; 1 Injured

ABC News

At least one person has reportedly been shot and wounded and one suspect taken into custody at the US National Security Agency's headquarters.

NBC News reported that its helicopter could see police surrounding a handcuffed man who was sitting on the ground.

A video broadcast on CBS News showed a black sports utility vehicle parked near the entrance of the NSA with what appeared to be bullet holes in the front windshield. "The situation is under control and there's no ongoing security or safety threat", NSA tweeted. He said he didn't know how the person was injured or whether the person was a law enforcement officer or a civilian.

The president has been briefed on the situation, CBS News reported.
