ANNAPOLIS, MD – In a tense incident that unfolded on the evening of February 29, the Maryland State House was placed on lockdown for two hours following a phoned-in threat from an unidentified man claiming to be armed and en route to the Capitol building. The alarming call was received by the Annapolis Police Department at approximately 5 p.m., prompting a swift and comprehensive response from law enforcement.

According to a report from the Baltimore Banner, Governor Wes Moore, Lieutenant Governor Aruna Miller, and Senate President Bill Ferguson, along with state employees and journalists, were present in the State House.

During the lockdown, witnesses reported police officers entering the State House with weapons drawn. Despite the intense response, no gunman or weapon was found, and the scene was eventually declared safe.

In response to the incident, Lieutenant Governor Aruna Miller expressed gratitude on Twitter. Her tweet read: “On days like today, I am grateful for the tireless and heroic men and women of the Maryland State Police, Maryland Capitol Police, and Anne Arundel County Police Department. Thanks to their service, they maintained the security and the safety of the State House Grounds.”
