Lakewood, Colo. (AP) Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputies have arrested a man suspected of firing at least one shot inside a credit union in Lakewood before fleeing in a stolen car today.

Sheriff's spokesman Jim Shires says no one was injured but it wasn't immediately known if any money was stolen from the Bellco Credit Union. Shires says 27-year-old Tobias Archuleta was arrested without incident about 3 this afternoon at a shopping center about
a mile southwest of the credit union.

Archuleta was arrested on federal bank robbery charges and taken to the Denver jail.

Customer service Vice President Sandra Sagehorn says one shot was fired, but it didn't appear to be aimed at anyone in particular. The credit union's security consultant, John Wyckoff, says the gunman walked in shortly after the business opened, fired his weapon and ordered everyone to get on the floor.

There were conflicting reports about how many shots were fired.
