Original release:

A man is in custody following a barricade in the 10900 block of Notchcliff Road in Parkville. The man was not armed and there were no injuries.

At 11 a.m., a security alarm was activated in the building that houses the armory at the Maryland National Guard property. Army personnel responded to the alarm, and after observing a male subject they called police. Because of the sensitive location, police dispatched the Negotiations Team and the Tactical Unit.

The man exited the armory without incident after speaking with police and was immediately taken into custody. The suspect will be sent for evaluation, and charges are pending.

At no point did the suspect have access to the weapons in the armory, which are stored in a secure vault.
