Police responded to a shooting Wednesday outside the National Security Agency campus at Fort Meade, where authorities surrounded a handcuffed man after a black SUV ran into a barrier.

The incident took place at the NSA entrance gate on MD-32 around 7:15 a.m.

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

Larry Whitley, a spokesman for Fort Meade police, said one person was injured in the incident and taken to a hospital.

In 2015, two men dressed as women tried to ram a stolen vehicle through the gate of the NSA headquarters at Fort Meade.

This is a breaking news story. Sources told CBS News that three people were injured and a suspect was in custody.

In that incident, the two men in the Ford SUV were dressed in women's clothes "but not in an attempt to disguise themselves from authorities", an Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman said at the time.
