Glen Burnie Patch is reporting an incident on I-295 in which Anne Arundel County and Maryland State Police are searching for a man who is thought to be armed, possibly with a shotgun or rifle.

Updated 2:57 p.m. Wednesday: Officers reopened the Baltimore-Washington Parkway at about 2:45 p.m. Wednesday after shutting it down to search for the man who was seen on the highway with a shotgun earlier that day.

Police expanded the search area around BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, said Maryland State Police spokesman Greg Shipley.

"We do not believe he is directly on the interstate at this point," Shipley said.

Police updated the description of the suspect, saying that he is believed to be between the ages of 60 and 65.
