A potentially armed suspect is inside the WMAR (Baltimore) 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.
According to witnesses, a screaming man repeatedly tried to get inside the WMAR 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."
The man, believed to still be in the ABC2 building, then rammed the front lobby three times. Police said the man was also seen wearing a backpack, which heightened alerts that he may be armed.
The York Road building has been evacuated, and nearby St. Pius X School is under lockdown. Locals are urged to avoid the area of the 6400 block of York Road.
The suspect may be armed, according to witnesses. WMAR staff have taken to Twitter to deliver information. According to Reporter Brian Kuebler, the suspect used a landscape truck and broke through the station lobby.
