After being evaluated and treated for minor injuries at a hospital, Baptiste allegedly waived his Miranda rights and was interviewed by police. Baptiste said he targeted WMAR-TV because he wanted to expose his parents because they are “running the multiverses,” according to the document. Baptiste also told police he didn’t intend to hurt anyone, authorities say. He is facing three counts of attempted second degree murder and is being held on $750,000 bond.
For staffers at WMAR it was a tense and frightening afternoon. With a major breaking news story literally busting through their front door they had no way of immediately getting the story to their television viewers. Though many employees were startled, they immediately went to work, reporting on the story as it unfolded. With the help of their sister station KNXV in Phoenix, Ariz., some 2,000 miles away, WMAR was able to get back on the air and broadcast the breaking story.
