LUTHERVILLE-TIMONIUM, Md. (AP) – A man barricaded himself inside a public transit bus in a Baltimore suburb Friday after he woke up and began making threats with a weapon, authorities said.

Police received a call around 10:04 a.m. about the situation inside the bus, said Kevin Gay, a public information specialist with the Baltimore County Police Department. Officers and a SWAT team responded to the scene near a light rail station and shopping center in Lutherville-Timonium.
