Maryland interstate closed after reports of gunman

Maryland State Police have closed Interstate 295 in Anne Arundel County  in both directions after receiving multiple reports of a man armed with a rifle or shotgun along the highway.

Police say the suspect is a white male between 50 and 60 years old and wearing a black-and-red flannel shirt and blue jeans.

The suspect may have been using a hammer to break into a parked vehicle near the intersection of I-295 and Route 195, police said.

    Wow – sooo much was left out of this report... The guy smashed one of the speed TRAP vehicles on the side of the road. It wasn't a random act. He smashed the camera that takes pics of speeding vehicles. Sorry, hate to say it Maryland Transportation Authority – but I say more power to him.. hope he smashes the cameras on the other 2 vehicles you 'try' to hide along the side of the road!!!
