At least three people have been injured following an incident at the Maryland military base where the National Security Agency is headquartered, US media reported.
Gunfire broke out after motorists, who were not identified, drove a black sport utility vehicle to a gate of the secretive government agency in Fort Meade, Maryland. Armed guards fired on the vehicle after it violated NSA security rules, Reuters reported.
Several individuals were taken to hospital following the shooting at the Fort Meade security gate, the NSA said in a statement. No injuries appeared to be from gunfire.
The NSA has said the situation was under control. The spy agency’s headquarters is located just outside Washington DC.
