So scary. A Baltimore TV station was reportedly evacuated on April 28 after a man allegedly threatened to blow up the station. A man allegedly walked into the station wearing a onesie, claiming he had a bomb. The suspect was reportedly shot and police are investigating the situation.
Employees at a Baltimore TV station were evacuated from their building on April 28, when a man wearing a panda bear type onesie, sunglasses and a surgical mask, reportedly entered and made a bomb threat. The suspect, who allegedly had on an explosive vest, has been shot, but authorities are still handling and investigating the horrifying situation. Get all the details here.
At approximately 1:30pm local time, the man allegedly tried to give employees a flash drive. He then started talking about the news and said whatever video was on the drive had to be shown. When a security guard found the situation to be suspicious, he asked employees to evacuate the building before he called authorities, WBALTV reports.
There was also a car fire outside, but it’s not clear if those two situations were connected. Police believe it may have been the suspect’s car.
The suspect has not yet been identified, but when SWAT officers responded to the scene a short time later, he was shot as he exited the building.
“At this point in time the suspect came out of the building and started advancing towards officers,” a police spokesman told CBS News.
The suspect is not dead, but remains on the ground at the scene. He’s still not complying with police orders, so they have robots sweeping for explosives.
At this time, officials are asking people to avoid the area.
