BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Police have arrested a suspect in an armed confrontation in Bismarck that shut down several city blocks and affected three schools.

Authorities received a report midday Tuesday of a man with a gun confronting a woman outside of a food service business. The woman wasn’t injured, and the man fled the scene.

Police announced early Wednesday that 31-year-old James Vann had been arrested late Tuesday in Wahpeton. He’s facing felony terrorizing charges. Court documents don’t list an attorney for him.

After the incident was reported Tuesday, police recommended employees at area businesses stay inside. Three schools briefly issued a “shelter in place” order as a precaution.
