FBI identifies man killed after NSA shooting
FORT MEADE, MD - The FBI has identified a man fatally shot at a National Security Agency gate after disobeying orders from guards there.
Spokeswoman Amy Thoreson says the dead man was 27-year-old Ricky Shawatza Hall. His passenger and an NSA police officer were injured and hospitalized and have not been identified.
Thoreson says the two men were dressed as women but "not in an attempt to disguise themselves from authorities."
Authorities say they had stolen a sport utility vehicle minutes before from a 60-year-old man who had picked them up in Baltimore and brought them to a Howard County motel to "party."
