Suspect held in Maryland highway shootings that damaged NSA building


The FBI said Wednesday that a person believed to be responsible for shootings along highways in the Baltimore-Washington area, including shots that damaged a National Security Agency building, is in custody.

In a statement, FBI spokeswoman Amy Thoreson said investigators believe that the person in custody is responsible for shootings over the last two weeks along Maryland highways, including one near the Ft. Meade Army installation that is home to the NSA.

She said no other information was available early Wednesday.

U.S. Park Police said the NSA reported damage to a building near the Baltimore-Washington Parkway on Tuesday. Earlier, Maryland Transportation Authority Police investigated shots fired on the Inter-County Connector about 12 miles away. Police said one vehicle was hit and that one person was injured by broken glass.


Authorities wouldn’t say if the NSA was targeted.
