A police sniper has shot a man who walked into a TV station wearing an animal onesie and displaying what appeared to be an explosive device on his chest.
The man entered Fox 45 studios in Baltimore in a onesie costume, with an object strapped to his chest that he claimed was a bomb.
He had reportedly set his car on fire outside of the building before entering.
Police say the man was demanding to be allowed on air, saying he had evidence of a government conspiracy.
The 'bomb' he claimed to be wearing was in fact chocolate bars wrapped in aluminium foil.
The man is in a serious but stable condition.
