Yemen's Defense Ministry website reported that "an armed terrorist group" attacked a government complex that is home to the provincial deputy governor Sinan Halqum.
The attack left two gunmen dead and three police officials wounded, said the report, but no further details off the incident were provided.
Baida is considered an stronghold area of Yemen's al-Qaeda chapter AQAP, who is often blamed for any anti-government activity or attacks in the area.
However, it is not yet clear if AQAP is behind the attack.
More than 374 Yemeni security force personnel have been killed in the first half of 2014 from Sanaa's offensive on AQAP strongholds as well as from fighting with northern Houthi rebels and southern separatists.
