PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The SWAT team spent about two hours surrounding a home in the Mount Washington section of Pittsburgh this morning.

According to initial reports, the incident started when police got a call asking for assistance at a home on Haberman Avenue near Eureka Street.

Authorities say they thought a man may have been holding someone else at gunpoint.

Officials blocked off the entire area.
