FBI investigating report of gunfire near NSA building

UPDATE (8:45 p.m.): The NSA says the FBI is leading the law enforcement investigation in this case.


FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — U.S. Park Police are investigating whether a reported shooting along the Baltimore-Washington Parkway caused the damage that was reported to a nearby National Security Agency building.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Lelani Woods said that the NSA reported damage to one of its buildings close to the parkway on Tuesday. She said it is too early to say whether the damage is related to the report of gunfire nearby.

NSA spokesman Ian Brennan says no injuries have been reported, and that state and local authorities are investigating.

Earlier Tuesday, Maryland Transportation Authority Police were investigating shots fired on the Inter-County Connector about 12 miles from the NSA. Police say one vehicle was hit, and one person was injured by broken glass.

Police would not say whether the shootings were related or whether the NSA was targeted.
