    Police are looking for a gunman who opened fire at NSA headquarters in Ft. Meade, Maryland.

    A National Security Agency building at the Ft. Meade, Maryland campus was damaged by multiple gunshots Tuesday after gunfire was reported in the area, according to a Park Police spokeswoman.

    The FBI is leading the investigation, according to NSA spokeswoman Meagan Roper.

    No injuries resulting from the incident were reported. 

    Initially, police responded to the report of gunfire by investigating the area along the nearby Baltimore-Washington parkway as the possible origin of the shots. Police believe no shots were fired from that area, said Park Police spokeswoman Alicia Woods. 

    A couple of hours earlier, just before 3 PM, police had responded to a shooting about 12 miles away in Laurel, Maryland, along the Intercounty Connecter near Interstate 95. 

    Police are seeking the gunman who struck a truck traveling eastbound along the highway twice, breaking the windshield of the vehicle. Neither occupant was struck by bullets but suffered minor injuries related to broken glass and were taken to the hospital. 

    Police are investigating whether the two incidents are related.
