It is believed one person is injured but the agency said “there is no ongoing threat” after the incident in which a black SUV ran into a concrete barricade. Police have arrested one male suspect but have not disclosed if he was the casualty.

White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement: “The President has been briefed on the shooting at Ft. Meade. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone that has been affected. We will continue to provide updates as they become available.”

FBI officers from the Baltimore office are responding to the incident.
