TEMPE, Ariz. -

Police say they've arrested a man who barricaded himself in the north side of Sun Devil Stadium on Thursday morning.

Tempe and Arizona State University Police began looking for a suspected gunman near the west side of Wells Fargo Arena around 5 a.m.

The suspect eventually barricaded himself inside a room in Sun Devil Stadium.

ASU Police spokesman Marshall Terrill says the man claimed he was a target and was being followed. He also claimed to have a gun.

Police tactical units responded and were able to talk the man out of the stadium at around 7 a.m.

Police say they believe the man has a mental illness. He isn't affiliated with ASU in any way.

ASU is on Spring Break and few students were in the area.
