One person was killed at gunpoint on Monday after a car with two people tried to ram a gate at the Fort Meade, Md. military base near a gate to the National Security Agency
A lot of federal buildings in the U.S have security check points that are a good distance from the actual headquarters. This is done because of situations like this and making sure the work day there isn’t completely messed up. A law enforcement official reported that both of the people involved in the shooting death at the gate of the National Security Agency in the Maryland suburb today were men. An image from the actual collision shows two vehicles at an intersection that appear to be damaged. The FBI said Monday morning that it was holding an investigation with NSA police and other law enforcement agencies, and interviewing witnesses on the scene.
This isn’t the first time the NSA has had an incident this month. At the beginning of March, a former state correctional officer was arrested and accused for a string of Maryland shootings, including one at Fort Meade. These gunshots struck a building near the NSA office and Hong Young, 35, of Beltsville, Maryland was arrested. Young was pulled over because an officer recognized his car as matching authorities’ description as seen in surveillance footage near the other shootings and the gun found inside the car matched evidence found at the shootings.
