(PHOENIX) —  Police in Arizona arrested a man at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport Thursday night in connection with a shooting in the city of Tempe, authorities said.

The suspect fled the scene and was spotted in the vicinity of Terminal 4.

It is unclear if the suspect — described as a shirtless black male with a slight build and dreadlocks — is armed.

Flights continued to arrive and depart from Terminals 2 and 3, while flights were frozen from departing Terminal 4 temporarily.

The man was not immediately identified by police, and Terminal 4 was re-opened.
