Police: Vehicle Rams ABC Affiliate TV Station in Maryland
Baltimore County police say a vehicle has rammed a television station and there may be an armed person inside the building (ABC affiliate WMAR).
TOWSON, Md. (AP) - Baltimore County police say a vehicle has rammed a television station and there may be an armed person inside the building.
Police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathy Batton says a vehicle rammed WMAR-TV's building, off a busy road north of Baltimore, just before noon Tuesday. Police are warning people to avoid the area.
In a tweet, the station identified the vehicle as a dump truck and said people should stay away from the building.
Helicopter video from WJZ-TV shows a hole in the front of the building, large enough for a vehicle to enter. Drivers were still able to enter a neighboring shopping center, although a section of the road was blocked to traffic.
