FBI agents open fire on gunman trying to enter CIA headquarters

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.

"The FBI is reviewing an agent-involved shooting that occurred at approximately 6 p.m. on Monday, May 3, 2021".

The bureau is famously tight-lipped about releasing information when its agents are involved in shootings, and because FBI agents generally don't do street patrols or respond to regular service calls, they are involved in fewer such incidents than many local police agencies.

But in 1993, a man who said he was protesting US policies toward Muslims shot and killed five people outside the facility, and then fled to Pakistan and Afghanistan.

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

The man attempted to drive into the campus without any access and was stopped by armed guards who operate the gates, according to reports.

One law enforcement source told NBC News that Central Intelligence Agency security officers had attempted to negotiate with the man to get back in his vehicle.

Earlier, a CIA spokesperson said they were aware of the situation outside the compound's secure perimeter, several hundred meters from the agency's main building.

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

Other high profile sites around the nation's capital are often on high alert.

At the time the incident was first reported, no shots were reported fired, and the guards were reportedly negotiating with driver, who remain inside their vehicle.
