Police say a man armed with a shotgun and hammer smashed the windshield of a Jeep used by a speed camera contractor. The man in the Jeep wasn't hurt, but the attack prompted officers to shut down the Baltimore-Washington Parkway near BWI Airport for several hours.

A police spokesman says the man does not appear in any of the video investigators have reviewed so far, but that process is continuing.
