GLENDALE, Ariz. -- One man was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries after being shot in the parking lot of University of Phoenix Stadium Friday night.

Glendale Police said two men had gotten into an altercation when the shooting occurred.

No one else was injured, and police have arrested the suspect. That suspect, according to police, was the person who called authorities.

The Arizona Cardinals played the Oakland Raiders in a preseason game on Friday.

Glendale police officers closed the parking lot while they investigated the shooting. That left dozens of fans unable to get to their cars after the game.

"They're saying that it's an active crime scene and they're not letting nobody get in there right now," said Arizona Cardinals fan Tim Tucker. "I don't know what we're gonna do. We're just gonna have to pray and wait and see."

"They said there was a shooting out here so we're diverted," said another fan who attended the game. "They said go over to this fence and the other police officers told us to come over to this fence and that they would provide us a way home if we couldn't get out."

Those fans were given taxi vouchers and told to pick up their cars on Saturday morning.

Police have not released any details on the shooting or the names of the people who were involved.
