A TV station in Baltimore was evacuated after a man walked into the building's lobby saying he had a bomb.
Newsy's partners at WMAR say the man, wearing an animal costume and a mask, walked into Fox45 shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday. The man spoke with a contractor who happened to be in the lobby. He demanded that information on a flash drive be put on the air. The station immediately evacuated and all employees are safe and accounted for.
Around the same time, a vehicle just outside the station was set on fire. Police have confirmed that vehicle is connected to the suspect.
