A man who threatened to blow up a Baltimore TV station has been shot by police snipers, but the situation is ongoing.

A FOX local reporter on the scene described three shots being fired and the suspect being hit. He is said to still be alive and police described the situation as "not safe."

The man - wearing a white panda suit - is said to have tried to enter the newsroom of WBFF in order to reveal information that he likened to the Panama Papers.

 

 

The man, a white male in his 20s, appeared to have a trigger in his hand, a reporter on the scene stated.

Here is a statement from the FOX 45 news director, which was posted to Facebook. 

Someone came into the front of the building and they apparently said that they had some information they wanted to get on the air. I came down at one point not knowing the person was in the lobby, near the vestibule area. He talked to me and was wearing what appears to be a full body white panda suit, surgical mask and sunglasses. He had a flash drive, said he had information he wanted to get on the air. He compared it to the information found in the Panama Papers. I told him, 'I can't let you in, you're going to have to leave the flash drive here and slide it through the opening.' He wouldn't do that. Apparently he had made some threats before.

A bomb squad is on the scene. It's unclear whether the man actually has an explosive device.

Police said the man also started a fire outside the building before entering the vestibule. He was stopped from going deeper into the building.

The building was quickly evacuated while police dealt with the situation. No one has been injured.
