WASHINGTON: A man who threatened to blow up a local Baltimore TV station Thursday dressed head-to-toe in a bear costume was carrying chocolate bars made to resemble an explosive device, police said.

The 25-year-old was in “serious but stable condition” at a local hospital after police shot him several times when he emerged from the building and walked toward them, Baltimore police spokesman T.J. Smith told reporters during a news conference.
