NEW YORK (Reuters) - A possibly armed suspect crashed a vehicle into a Maryland television news station and has barricaded himself inside the building, police and witnesses said on Tuesday.

The vehicle crashed into the ABC 2 news station in Towson, Maryland around 11:45 a.m. (1545 GMT), a spokesman with the Baltimore County Police Department said. Police evacuated the building and urged people to avoid the area.

Brian Kuebler, a reporter who works at the station, said on Twitter the suspect rammed the building three times with a landscaping truck. He "tried to get in (the) building screaming 'LET ME IN' and said he was God," according to Kuebler's Twitter post.
