Md. highway closed as police search for armed man

Police in Maryland are searching for an armed man after getting reports that shots were fired near a highway between Baltimore and Washington.

A Maryland State Police news release says there are no injuries. A section of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway was closed in both directions for the investigation near Interstate 195, about two miles from the Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

Maryland State Police and Anne Arundel County police were on the scene after calls Wednesday morning reporting a man with a shotgun or rifle along the parkway, about 10 miles outside Baltimore.
