A man died Sunday morning after authorities believe he jumped in front of a Metro subway train as it arrived at a stop in Pikesville. Terry Owens, a spokesman for the Maryland Transit Administration, said the incident happened shortly before 11 a.m. at the Milford Mill station. Based on observations from the train operator and onboard video cameras, Owens said, MTA police investigators "have reason to believe this was a case of suicide. " The MTA closed the station for several hours during the investigation, until about 5 p.m., and subway trains bypassed the Milford Mills station en route to other stops.

A bill to ban the Maryland Transit Administration's practice of recording conversations on its buses has been filed by two state senators. James Brochin, a Baltimore County Democrat, and Allan Kittleman, a Republican representing Howard and Carroll counties, want the MTA to stop installing microphones and deactivate units in use by Oct. 1. "I have spoken to the MTA, and I have a philosophical difference with them," said Brochin. "What I discuss on the bus is nobody's business but my own. " Agency spokesman Terry Owens said the recordings give police additional assistance to investigate incidents and are not being used for surveillance.
