Police respond to 'ongoing security incident' outside CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia

04 Mai, 2021, 05:36 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

News national security correspondent Ken Dilanian reported that no shots were fired and "another law enforcement source said Central Intelligence Agency security officers were negotiating with the person, who remained in his or her vehicle".

An armed man was shot by FBI agents Monday after a standoff of several hours at the entry gate to the CIA headquarters, the federal investigation agency said.

In recent years there have also been several incidents at another intelligence agency's offices: the National Security Agency (NSA) in Fort Meade, Maryland.

A negotiation ensued for hours, and according to an Federal Bureau of Investigation statement, the man emerged from his auto carrying a gun and was shot by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who were manning the checkpoint.

"The subject was wounded and has been transported to a hospital for medical attention".

Fairfax County Police told reporters Monday that a auto containing one person had attempted to drive towards the CIA's facility in Langley, Virginia, before being halted by guards who operate a series of gates.

Officers from the Fairfax County Police were on site managing traffic around the heavily guarded main entrance to the agency, about 10 miles from Washington D.C.

The FBI said in a statement that the individual "emerged from his vehicle with a weapon and was engaged by law enforcement officers". The gates are set far away from the office buildings where the spy agency does its work, and police have blockaded the road at the highway intersection so that no more cars may approach the area, including reporters.

"In coordination with our local law enforcement partners, we are addressing a security situation just outside the secure perimeter of CIA Headquarters by our main gate on Route 123", a CIA spokesperson initially told NBC News.

The CIA has been the target of attacks in the past. He was executed for the murders in 2002.

In April, a U.S. Capitol police officer was killed and a second was injured after a suspect rammed a barrier.
