They have re-opened local roads they had to close. About 50 people — some 40 customers and 10 employees — were kept in the Home Depot store as police tried to resolve the situation, said Lt. Andrea Bylen, a police spokeswoman.

Bylen said after getting the call from the family, police located him about 7 p.m. driving on York Road in Timonium and tried to get him to pull him over. He turned onto Industry Lane and stopped in the Home Depot parking lot.
