NSA, Maryland Shootings Possibly Linked

The FBI says it has a suspect in custody in connection to a shooting late Tuesday at the National Security Agency headquarters at Maryland’s Fort Meade and other incidents of gunfire over the past week in the Baltimore-Washington area, according to a statement early Wednesday. “We believe the subject responsible for shooting incidents on the ICC, near Fort Meade Army installation and other locations around the Baltimore-Washington metro area in the last two weeks is in custody,“ said FBI spokeswoman Amy Thoreson. Authorities are investigating five incidents across three counties, which left at least two people wounded. Shots were fired last Tuesday at a shopping complex while police received reports of gunfire at a Wal-Mart and the AMC Theater at The Mall in Columbia on Monday. Authorities also said a gunman fired on a garbage truck on Tuesday, injuring two passengers. Gunshots were reported Tuesday evening at the NSA campus, about 12 miles from the garbage truck incident.
