FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot people inside a Flagstaff bank.

Flagstaff police say 40-year-old Sampson Yazzie Webb was arrested without incident Wednesday.

Police say their investigation was continuing and they didn’t immediately say what charges Webb would be facing.

Police say they received a call from Compass Bank just before noon that someone was inside the bank making threats.

Authorities say they also were told that the suspect was intoxicated and threatening to shoot people with a gun.

Officers arrived on the scene and established a perimeter before unsuccessfully trying to call the man inside the bank.

Police later entered the bank and made the arrest. They say nobody was injured during the incident.

It was unclear if Webb has a lawyer yet.
