ODENTON, Md. — Anne Arundel County Police were in the 8300 block of Telegraph Road in Odenton for reports of an armed suspect on Tuesday.

Police closed the area for the suspect, who was believed to be in an apartment.

Officers were in contact with surrounding apartments asking those who live there to evacuate or shelter in place.

After almost 6 hours of negotiations, their Crisis Intervention Team and Negotiators were able to convince the suspect to put down his weapon and come outside.

The suspect has been taken into custody with no injuries to civilians or officers.
