A truck that was speeding toward the National Security Agency campus in Maryland was stopped by gunfire. We have all of the latest information on this scary incident, what the attempted NSA attack might mean, and who is handling the investigation.
Did the SVU Attempt an NSA Attack?
Just after 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 14, 2018, a black SUV tried to enter the campus grounds of the National Security Agency (NSA) at Fort Meade, Maryland. The SUV apparently rammed into a concrete barrier. Shots were fired but no one was killed.
The NSA later provided statements via the Internet and social media, saying that the situation had been diffused and that there was no reason to worry as the incident had been contained.
According to an NSA statement:
“Weapons were discharged in the course of the incident, which remains under investigation at this time. Several individuals were transported to area hospitals; however, preliminary reports do not presently indicate that there are injuries attributable to gunfire.”
Shortly after the incident was contained, President Trump was alerted to the situation and the White House offered their thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by the situation.
Speculation Runs Rampant
Currently, some sources have told the media that the potential attack was not a terrorist event, but they did not elaborate on what the incident could be related to.
Fox News is reporting that there were allegedly three people seen in the black SUV and at least one of the people in that vehicle was injured in the conflict. In pictures of the vehicle, it is evident that the airbags were deployed and there are signs of bullet holes through the windshield.
The Baltimore branch of the FBI has taken over the investigation of the case. Hopefully, there will be more news forthcoming as there are still many lingering questions about this very curious incident against the United State’s top spy agency.
