TOWSON, Md. (AP) - A county official says police took a suspect into custody about five hours after he rammed a truck through the front of Baltimore-area television station WMAR.

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz says officers captured the suspect inside the station late Tuesday afternoon.

Kamenetz says the suspect was not injured. He says the suspect was mentally ill and has been taken for treatment.

Police Chief James Johnson says it's clear the suspect suffers from "emotional or mental health issues."
