At least one person was injured, and police are investigating a shooting near the National Security Administration building at Fort Meade in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, officials said.

“NSA police and local law enforcement are addressing an incident that took place this morning at one of NSA’s security vehicle entry gates. The situation is under control and there’s no ongoing security or safety threat,” an NSA statement said, reported The Baltimore Sun.

Some reports said that as many as three people were injured.

President Donald Trump was “briefed on the shooting at Ft. Meade,” the paper reported. Spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said that the White House offers thoughts and prayers to those who were affected.

The agency told CNN that the incident took place at the campus vehicle gate. Footage also shows a black SUV that apparently crashed into concrete barriers.

“The situation is under control and there is no ongoing security or safety threat,” the agency added in a statement.

Further details weren’t available.
