Just 1 person with man in hotel standoff

University Police Chief Matt Clark said police did what they could to notify guests, but some were surprised as they woke up to police presence without seeing news reports.

Police say a standoff continues with a man holed up in a hotel room on the University of Minnesota campus, but there's only one other person in the room instead of two as police said earlier.

The standoff began after midnight Monday, when police said they went to the hotel on a welfare check and to try to arrest the man on a non-violent, "white-collar crime" warrant out of Arizona.

Both University of Minnesota and Minneapolis Police were present at the scene Monday. Authorities were still speaking with the man late Monday evening.

The school issued an alert Monday morning about a "public safety situation" at the Graduate Minneapolis Hotel.
