Baltimore County police apprehended a man who crashed into the WMAR-TV news station building after stealing a truck and barricading himself in a second floor editing room, officials confirmed.
A potentially armed suspect is inside the ABC2 News building after ramming into the TV station with a dump truck. Police would later confirm that the dump truck the man used to ram the building three times was stolen.
The truck belonged to a State Highway Administration subcontractor and was stolen at about noon, police said.
According to witnesses, a screaming man repeatedly tried to get inside the WMAR-TV building at about 11:45 a.m. ABC2 News investigative reporter Brian Kuebler tweeted " suspect tried to get in building screaming LET ME IN and said he was God."
ABC2 reporter Christian Schaffer posted this video to Vine of surveillance footage of the truck:
