Two men believed to be dressed as women tried to get by the entrance to the National Security Agency complex at Fort Meade on Monday in a stolen car around 9 a.m. One of the men was shot dead by a security guard; one other person has been reported injured. NBC News reports that a gun and cocaine were found in the stolen Ford Escape. The incident is being handled as a “local criminal matter,” and no federal agencies are involved yet in investigating what happened. Tens of thousands of military and civilian workers are located at Fort Meade.
This is the second reported shooting incident at the NSA complex this month.
