TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Tempe police say a report of a gunman at a movie theater at Arizona Mills Mall has prompted an evacuation.
   
Police spokesman Michael Pooley says authorities received a call Tuesday night from someone at the mall saying there was a man in the back of a theater pointing a gun at people.
   
Television station KNXV reports that officers evacuated the theater as a precaution. Authorities believe the man with the gun is still inside the theater, but they say they don't believe he's dangerous.
   
Pooley says no one has been injured.
