One person has been killed following a shootout at the NSA facilities of the Maryland Army installation, in Fort Meade.
One person is dead after a security guard exchanged gunfire with two men who tried to enter the facility disguised as women.
The guard got into an altercation with the men outside the gate for the NSA side of the Maryland Army installation.
Gunfire was exchanged, and it is believed that the guard shot at least one of the men.
At least one gun and drugs were found in the stolen Ford Escape the men were riding in, according to press.
Emergency workers could be seen caring for an injured, uniformed man who was loaded into an ambulance.
There are also two damaged vehicles outside the gate, including a police SUV.
A senior U.S. official told press that the incident appears to be a “local criminal matter”; so far, no federal agencies, including the FBI, are involved in the investigation.
