Baltimore County law enforcement officials say the 29-year-old man was taken into custody at about 4 p.m. Tuesday after spending nearly five hours barricaded inside the WMAR-TV station in Towson, watching journalists deliver live reports from just outside the building.

No one, including the suspect, was injured, according to Baltimore County Police. The man's name was not immediately released.
