Armed Intruder Shot Attempting To Drive Into CIA Headquarters With Car
LANGLEY, VIRGINIA - An armed intruder has been shot attempting to drive through the entrance of the CIA headquarters facility in Langley.
Security officers at the CIA building negotiated with the armed intruder for a matter of hours before they got out of their vehicle brandishing their weapon and was shot by FBI agents.
An official had stated that the armed intruder claimed to be in possession of explosives, but law enforcement officials have not confirmed that explosives were actually at the scene.
Two officials have claimed that the intruder was mentally ill and has attempted to break into the CIA headquarters unsuccessfully before.
The FBI stated that the unidentified man was taken to a nearby hospital neither his current condition, nor the extent of his injuries are yet known.
The FBI put out a statement saying "The FBI takes all shooting incidents involving our agents or task force members seriously. The review process is thorough and objective, and is conducted as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances".
In 1993 a Pakistani national named Mir Aimal Kasi murdered two CIA employees who were sitting in their cars, and injured three more while they were waiting for the stoplight near the same facility entrance.
The man was later convicted and was executed in 2002. After that incident happened the CIA has been taking security around their headquarters very seriously.
