Authorities took back a Maryland National Guard facility Monday after a soldier barricaded himself inside.

The man temporarily took over the building at a National Guard facility in Glen Arm, barricading himself inside the building that houses the armory with military weapons. Authorities said at a press conference the weapons were in a vault with a code that the man did not have access to. He was not armed and did not take any hostages or work with anyone else, as far as authorities know. He was finally coaxed out by police and will likely face charges.

Authorities said they are unsure of his motives and have not released information about his identity or what branch of the military he serves. There were no injuries, The Baltimore Sun reports. The facility is 244 acres used for training as well as housing weapons.

Negotiators and the tactical team were dispatched to talk the man out of the facility.
