Police say Sterling was armed with a shotgun, three handguns and knives, as well as ammunition and "other handheld weapons".

The four-day entertainment and comic convention is being held at the Phoenix Convention Centre. Phoenix police reportedly became aware of the man and his arsenal after he posted images of the weapons and messages threatening the city's police officers on social media. If you buy a prop weapon, police will require you keep it sealed while you're inside the venue.

According to police, 31-year-old Mathew Sterling made threats to harm a performer at the event. He was also wearing body armor under his clothes.

While the news of the arrest at the Phoenix Comicon is disturbing, the police have stated that there is no further evidence to suggest the man was working as a part of a team. However, this did not seem to occur on Thursday, with the armed man slipping through into the convention while fully armed.

Police have said they believe the unidentified man at the Phoenix Comicon "acted alone". Vendors will still be allowed to seal sealed toy weapons, but the police will require buyers to keep the packages unopened until exiting the venue.

According to Sgt. Fortune, Phoenix Comicon attendees can still enjoy the convention in costume, but must leave their weaponry behind.

Police are ramping up security over the weekend with additional screenings amid the incident. The police apprehended the man and took him in for questioning without any shots being fired.
