FORT MEADE, Md: A senior U.S. official says preliminary reports from the scene at Fort Meade, Md., indicate one person is dead after a car with two people tried to ram a gate at the base.
The official says a firefight ensued after the car tried to crash the gate, and at least one of the two people in the car is dead.
Fort Meade — a sprawling Army installation near Baltimore — is home of the National Security Agency.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss an ongoing incident by name.
A spokeswoman at Fort Meade said earlier that two people had been injured near a gate to the National Security Agency.
Mary Doyle said emergency responders were on the scene of the incident Monday morning.
