A guard reportedly got into an altercation with two men disguised as women who were trying to enter the facility Monday morning, NBC News reports.

Gunfire was exchanged, and it is believed that the guard shot one, or both, of the men. One is dead and another sent to the hospital.

A gun and drugs were found in the vehicle the men were riding in, according to NBC News.

From Chopper4, emergency workers could be seen caring for an injured, uniformed man who was loaded into an ambulance.
