Washington: The FBI is trying to determine why a black SUV carrying three people tried to enter a top-secret intelligence site at Fort Meade, but officials said they don’t believe terrorism was the reason.
The unauthorized vehicle at the National Security Agency’s campus prompted shots to be fired at the vehicle Wednesday morning. The driver was hospitalized, though NSA and FBI officials say they don’t believe any injuries were caused by bullets. Two other occupants were taken into custody.
“We are making a determination as part of the ongoing investigation as to what happened leading them on to the NSA compound and then what happened once they got on the compound,” said Gordon Johnson, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Baltimore field office. “I cannot emphasize enough that we believe there is no indication that this has a nexus to terrorism.”
Authorities have not released the names of any of the individuals involved. Johnson said they were male, but didn’t release ages.
