5:31 pm
fox 45 but he was able to escape after talking to the suspect for several minutes as the situation was evolving. apparently the suspect brought in a device, we believe a flash drive and wanted fox 45 to air something on the news. what is it he wanted them to air is something that we are still investigating. we don't know the full answers to that right now. the suspect had on some sort of outfit. it's being described basically as a panda outfit onesie type outfit that was a panda. the suspect is a 25-year-old white male. not from baltimore. we believe he is from howard county, maryland. we are still following up on this investigation as we speak. i'm not positively identifying him at this point because we have yet to charge the suspect. he is at a local hospital receiving treatment. let me go back to

wrapped around him. he had on some type of surgical mask, some type of coat on underneath the outfit and there was this red device that is being described like maybe a red flotation type device with devices in it that looked like explosives. what we have been able to find out is those devices were actually chocolate candy bars wrapped in aluminum foil with wiring connecting each of them. there was a small mother board and that mother board has been described as something that you might see in a fire extinguisher that was attached to this contraption and the wire was also running down the sleeve of his jacket into his hand basically emulating some type of detonation type device. so, it does not appear that this was a device capable of actual explosives but the appearance

5:34 pm
they were able to closely examine the device and see what it actually was. we are still in the process of clearing the fox 45 building. we were able to account for everyone. but, of course, public safety is the most important thing at this point in time. so, as it stands, that's where we are. the suspect is expected to survive. we will work with the state attorney's office and federal partners as we move through with charging. this will take more than the time i'm standing here and it will take more than a couple of days to determine everything that went on here. with that, let's ask some questions. >> do you know anything about this guy's history? i know you are not publicly identifying him? do you know anything about his background. >> we do not have any information on his background. >> the latest out of baltimore and the incident where a suspect walked in to the x
