A man in a full-body hedgehog jumpsuit and "surgical-style mask" was shot by police outside of a Baltimore TV station after setting a car on fire and claiming to be carrying an explosive, The Baltimore Sun reports.
The man reportedly entered Fox 45 in Baltimore claiming he had information to share with the station, except he was wearing a "hedgehog onesie" and boots, security guard Jourael Apostolides said.

While Apostolides didn't let the man into the lobby, he did take the flash drive from him (it reportedly contained a video of the man "talking about space and the government").
Teen pregnancy rates are now lower than ever before, a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention out Thursday reveals, and it's not for the reason popular culture might lead you to suspect. While analysts do attribute the stark drop in teen birth rates — with, notably, a nearly 50 percent drop among Hispanic and black teens in particular — to better access to more effective contraception, they also contend that teens today are simply having less sex.
Ted Cruz is not what one would call a communist. That is why, as a joke, some witty young man reportedly decided to ask the Texas senator to sign Karl Marx and Friedrich Engel's seminal work on the philosophy, The Communist Manifesto.

Ted Cruz, though, apparently did not get it:
A young man asked @SenTedCruz to sign a copy of the Communist Manifesto as a joke.
The Republican Party has not been this unpopular since 1992, according to a poll by the Pew Research Center released Thursday. According to the numbers, a whole 60 percent of Americans have an unfavorable opinion of the GOP — up from 58 percent last October. Only a third of Americans view the party favorably.
Americans have held a more level opinion of the Democratic Party over recent years, with the numbers sticking around 50 percent with an unfavorable view and 45 percent viewing the party in a good light.
A Florida GOP official somehow decided it was appropriate to use Hillary Clinton's husband's past as a metaphor for how the Democratic frontrunner would fare against likely GOP nominee Donald Trump in general election debates.
"I think when Donald Trump debates Hillary Clinton she's going to go down like Monica Lewinsky," Bob Sutton, chairman of the Broward County GOP Executive Committee, told The Washington Post, referencing former President Bill Clinton's sex scandal with Lewinsky, which infamously involved oral sex.
Here's hoping Trump doesn't catch wind of the comment and get any ideas.
