Barricaded Suspect Apprehended at Baltimore TV Station

May 13, 2014  | 

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. 

The suspect stole an unattended truck from a State Highway Administration subcontractor at about noon, police told WMAR. Police also recovered several machetes, believed to belong to the workers from whom he stole the truck.

The man rammed the lobby of the WMAR-TV news station several times with the truck as a security guard began to usher employees from the building. There were no injuries of either WMAR employees or responding officers.

According to witnesses, the man repeatedly tried to get inside the WMAR-TV building. ABC2 News investigative reporter Brian Kuebler tweeted "suspect tried to get in building screaming LET ME IN and said he was God."

WMAR-TV news director Kelly Groft said all employees were safe and accounted for. One station employee had to be escorted out of the building by tactical officers after sheltering in place for several hours.
