CAPE CORAL,Fla. — One person is in custody after police say he barricaded himself inside of a Circle-K.

This happened just before 2:00 a.m. Thursday at the store on Cape Coral Parkway, near downtown Cape Coral.

Police on the scene said the man went into the store and locked himself in the office after employees asked if they could help him.

Police say the man was unarmed and did not take anything.

Officers eventually broke the door down and took him into custody.
