(NBC News) - Gunfire erupted Monday morning at the gate of the National Security Agency's facility at Fort Meade in Maryland when two men disguised as women in a stolen car tried to enter, sources said.

A guard intervened and shot at least one of the men in the Ford Escape. A search of the vehicle turned up a gun and some drugs.

The condition of the men in the car was not confirmed. The NSA is a conducting the investigation into the incident, but the FBI was also on the scene.

It's not clear why the men were trying to enter the facility, but there is no indication it was a terrorist event. One senior U.S. official called it a "local criminal matter."
