No injuries have been reported at the scene, though the NSA told NBC Washington that one of its buildings was damaged by “what appear to be” several gunshots. Law enforcement officials are investigating the situation, but US Park Police say they don’t know who may have fired the shots.

According to the Washington Post, US Park Police spokesperson Alicia Woods said the NSA “found evidence of multiple shots hitting a wall of a building.”

Police are also looking into reports of several gunshots being fired along the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and Route 32, which is located near the NSA. No injuries have been reported from that incident, and officials are trying to determine if the two events are related.

About two hours before the incident near the NSA came to light, gunshots were reported at the Maryland Intercounty Connector, about 12 miles away from the NSA campus. Two people suffered minor injuries during this shooting, though they have been hospitalized and were not actually hit by bullets.

According to the newspaper, surveillance footage highlights what could be a gray or blue Lincoln Town Car at multiple crime scenes, though the quality of the videos has not been good enough to pick out a license plate or identify a possible shooter. Ballistic evidence also seems to point towards multiple incidents being connected.
