That person is now being taken for a medical evaluation.

Original Story:
(CBSDC) A potentially armed man has apparently rammed a Baltimore television station WMAR with a truck.

The ABC affiliate is warning people to stay clear of the station, located in the 6400 block of York Road in Towson, just north of Baltimore city limits.

The truck is completely inside the lobby of the station, according to a tweet by WMAR’s digital producer.

SWAT teams have joined a heavy law enforcement presence that includes Maryland State Police and Baltimore County officers at the station.

Police have restricted access to York Road as a result of the incident.

Mike Masco, a meteorologist at the station, reports the man has made it to the second floor of the building.

Police discovered weapons inside the man’s vehicle, according to Masco.

Station employees have been evacuated and some are congregating at a nearby shopping center.

A WMAR news director says all employees have been accounted for.
