PREVIOUSLY: A man walked to the door of WMAR-TV Baltimore before noon today shouting “I am God”, then went back to the parking lot and repeatedly slammed a large dumptruck into the lobby. He then barricaded himself inside as the staff was evacuated, though police said some employees could still be inside sheltering in place. SWAT teams were seen moving in, but the man — possibly armed — remains inside in ABC affiliate, according to reports from the scene. WMAR weatherman Mike Masco tweeted that police found weapons in the man’s vehicle, a landscaping truck that the company had reported stolen. A nearby school and parish are on lockdown. A news conference is scheduled to take place shortly.
