Gunfire erupted Monday morning at the gate of the National Security Agency’s facility at Fort Meade in Maryland when two men disguised as women in a stolen car tried to enter, sources said.
A guard intervened and shot at least one of the men in the Ford Escape. A search of the vehicle turned up a gun and some drugs.
