LANGLEY, Va. — An armed intruder has died after the FBI shot him outside the CIA headquarters in Virginia, authorities said Tuesday.

The unidentified suspect drove to the CIA building in Langley around 6 p.m. Monday and “emerged from his vehicle with a weapon,” according to the FBI. At least one agent who was outside opened fire, fatally striking the driver, officials said in a statement.
