Updated at 8:15 p.m. — Dolley Madison Boulevard has now been reopened, Fairfax County police say.
Earlier: Route 123 is currently closed in both directions between Georgetown Pike and Kirby Road in McLean.
The Fairfax County Police Department says the closure is due to “police activity” in the area.
The area includes the CIA headquarters at Langley. NBC News reported earlier this afternoon that an intruder attempted to drive into the facility and was stopped by armed guards at the gates.
According to NBC News, shots were fired during the encounter, but it is unknown whether anyone has been injured.
Fairfax County police spokesperson Sgt. Hudson Bull confirmed to Tysons Reporter that the department “is assisting with traffic control for a police incident at CIA Headquarters.”
A CIA spokesperson said that the agency is “addressing a security situation” just outside the perimeter by the main gate of its headquarters.
“Our compound remains secured, and our Security Protective Officers working the incident are the only Agency personnel directly involved,” the spokesperson said.
