Yes, but highly unlikely. Depressurize the system by letting the fuel bleed off out the Schraeder valve on the fuel rail. This will look like an aluminum valve similar to the valve on the rim of the'll be on top of the motor on a fuel line with a black cap covering it. Anyways, bleed it the same as you would let air out of the tire (watch it doesn't spray you). Once it's bled, turn the key to on (not start) for 5 seconds and try depressurizing it again. If fuel doesn't spray out again, it'll be fuel pump related. If it does spray out, chances are it's an ignition or related parts failure.
