Official: Suspect in Maryland TV Station Crash in Custody

Posted: Updated:
A county official says police took a suspect into custody about five hours after he rammed a truck through the front of a Baltimore-area television station.
 
Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz says officers captured the suspect inside the station late Thursday afternoon.
 
Kamenetz says the suspect was not injured. He says the suspect was mentally ill and has been taken for treatment.
 
Police Chief James Johnson says it's clear the suspect suffers from "emotional or mental health issues.
 
WMAR-TV News Director Kelly Groft tells The Associated Press in a phone interview that when the truck began ramming the lobby around noon Tuesday, she screamed for everyone in the newsroom to get out.
 
A hole the size of several garage doors could be seen in the front of the building Tuesday afternoon. Police officers were on the scene, and news helicopters hovered above. A school next door was locked down.   (AP)
