SAN DIEGO (AP) — Authorities say a man hopped a security fence and refused to come down from the rooftop of a building at San Diego's FBI headquarters office for much of the day.

FBI spokesman Darrell Foxworth says the man arrived alone at FBI headquarters and climbed over a security gate at about 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

The man tried to get in through the main entrance, and police were called.

He entered and walked to the top of the parking structure then got to the rooftop of an annex building.

FBI hostage negotiators and SWAT team along with San Diego police and firefighters were called to the scene and the man was taken into custody after about six hours.

It's not clear whether the man was armed or what he was seeking.
