At least 3 shot on NSA campus at Fort Meade; suspect arrested


Feb. 14 (UPI) — At least three people were shot near the National Security Agency campus at Fort Meade in Maryland on Wednesday, authorities said.

Officials say the shooting occurred on Maryland’s Highway 32 around 7:15 a.m. A black SUV at the scene appeared to have multiple bullet holes in its windshield.

None of the injuries are life-threatening and police have arrested a suspect. A police officer was among the injured.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation said it is “aware” of the incident and has sent agents to the scene.

Highway 32 was closed in both directions Wednesday morning, Anne Arundel County Public Schools said — adding that the situation would “cause delays in bus transportation for students near Fort Meade.”

The White House said in a statement that President Donald Trump was briefed on the shooting.

“The President has been briefed on the shooting at Ft. Meade. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone that has been affected,” White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said.
