Baltimore police discovered a van loaded with 1,000 gallons of gasoline Monday morning and are evacuating several office buildings from the Inner Harbor — where emergency officials are urging people to stay away, city council members confirmed.

The article goes on to state the following:

A police spokesperson said they received a call at 11:02 a.m. about a suspicious van and began evacuating 100 E. Pratt St., which houses T. Rowe Price and and global professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.

“Police and Fire Department are currently Investigating a possible suspicious vehicle in the 100 block of East Pratt St. Several streets blocked off,” the Baltimore Police tweeted.

According to Twitter posts from local reporters, the vehicle was found in a parking garage, when security officials smelled gasoline.
