A barricade situation at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe has ended Thursday morning with the arrest of man who had called police to say he was armed.

The man, who called authorities around 5 a.m., had holed up inside a storage room in the stadium at Arizona State University.

No gun was found. The man had told police that he was being chased and that he had fired at his assailants.

Campus was nearly empty because of spring break.
