A man that was dancing around on a roof and waving a gun is now in custody.

The incident happened near Valley View and Sahara.

Police say the man was acting erratically on top of a vacant building in a shopping plaza. The building used to be a Food 4 Less.

After about an hour, police were able to negotiate with the man to come down on a ladder and surrender.

He was taken into custody.

It is unclear if the man was on drugs or what his motive was.
