Shooting reported near NSA headquarters in Maryland

Shooting Near US National Security Agency At Least 1 Held Reports

The shooting happened near the military installation's gate off of Route 32 at Canine Road around 7:15 a.m. Wednesday.

'The situation is under control and there's no ongoing security or safety threat, ' an NSA spokesman said.

Fort Meade garrison spokeswoman Cheryl Phillips confirmed by phone that one person was injured in the shooting outside the base and was taken to hospital.

A black SUV appeared to have crashed into a concrete barrier surrounding the site, and bullet holes were visible in the vehicle's front windows. The investigation into the attack is now underway.

Dave Fitz, an Federal Bureau of Investigation spokesman, said the agency was "aware of the incident" and its Baltimore unit was responding.

Russian Federation mercenaries killed by U.S. troops in Syria gun battle
It is very hard to estimate the number of Russians working as military contractors in Syria and the number who are killed. The reports coincide with the release of the names on Twitter of six Russian men killed in Syria last week.

A person has been shot outside the National Security Agency's Maryland headquarters. The secretive agency focuses on using technological tools, including the monitoring of internet traffic, to monitor the government's adversaries.

In a statement, the White House said, "Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone that has been affected".

Fort Meade is located just off a major Washington-area highway and motorists occasionally unintentionally take the exit that leads them to its gates, which are manned by armed guards.

In March of 2015, one person was killed and another was wounded when they drove a stolen SUV up to the NSA gates and refused orders to turn around. NSA police fired at the vehicle, killing one suspect and injuring the other, NBC Washington reported.
