Man Reportedly Rams Baltimore TV Station Seven Times While Chanting These Three Words

"The guy is holed up in the building."

TOWSON, Md. (TheBlaze/AP) — Baltimore County police say a vehicle has rammed a television station and there may be an armed person inside the building. The three words he apparently said when he approached? "I am God."

In a tweet, station WMAR-TV identified the vehicle as a dump truck and said people should stay away from the building, off a busy road north of Baltimore.

Mike Masco, a meteorologist for the news station, has been tweeting about the event.

The station's news director tweeted a photo of the front of the building after the truck burst into the lobby.

Police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathy Batton says the vehicle hit the station just before noon Tuesday.

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. Drivers were still able to enter a neighboring shopping center, although a section of the road was blocked to traffic.
