Authorities are responding to a shooting at the National Security Agency campus at Fort Meade.

In a Twitter message, the Anne Arundel County Fire Department said it was assisting the Fort Meade fire department with "an incident at NSA".

One person was injured in the incident at the Maryland military installation, though it's unclear if the suspect was the person taken to the hospital.

There has been a shooting outside National Security Agency headquarters in Maryland.

This is a breaking news story.

A White House Statement read: "Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone that has been affected".

An NSA spokesman told local media the area outside America's electronic espionage agency was now secure after a "security incident".

Aerial footage of the scene showed a black SUV that appeared to have crashed into concrete barriers. Shots were fired, according to local media and there are bullet holes in the vehicle, including in the front window. The FBI was leading the investigation into the incident.

From Chopper4, police could be seen surrounding a handcuffed man who was sitting on the ground.

Despite prominent highway signs, drivers occasionally take the wrong exit and end up at the tightly secured gates. "Most motorists then carefully follow the orders of heavily armed federal officers and turn around without getting into more trouble", the paper reports.

"The NSA Police force is now investigating".

In March 2015, two people tried to drive their sports utility vehicle through the NSA's heavily guarded gate.
