(NBC) -- Four hours after a truck rammed through the front of a Baltimore area TV station, police took a suspect into custody.

Police cars surrounded WMAR TV, the ABC affiliate in Towson, Maryland and there is a gaping hole in the lobby.

Just before noon, a truck came barreling through the lobby and into the newsroom, sending staffers running for safety.

The station believes everyone was able to evacuate safely.

Armed officers quickly surrounded the TV station.

Kelly Groft, the station's news director, is used to directing her staff to cover the news and today her priority was getting everyone out of the building.

Groft says while her staff couldn't cover this story live on the air because they weren't allowed inside the station, they still kept their viewers updated on what's going on.
