SWAT Team Called To Arlington Standoff

ARLINGTON (KDKA) – The SWAT team was called to a home in Arlington Wednesday morning.

According to police,  the incident took place in the 2000-block of Arlington Avenue around 11:30 a.m.

Police were trying to execute a search warrant out of Westmoreland County when the standoff began.

Westmoreland County warrant officers had been to the residence before looking for Elgin Youngblood.

Youngblood’s girlfriend lives at the Arlington residence. When he showed up Wednesday morning, Westmoreland County officers were called.  In turn, they asked Zone 3 officers to apprehend Youngblood.

When Zone 3 officers arrived, Youngblood refused to open the door, which prompted the call for the SWAT Team.

SWAT officers ordered Youngblood to come out of the home and he cooperated.

He was wanted for child support violations and questioning.

    Swat team for CHILD SUPPORT are you kidding. I had a swarm of bee’s attack me today should I call swat?

    1. SWAT WIFE says:

      How does anyone know what a suspect is going to do? If they refuse to cooperate with officers, why shouldn’t they call for reinforcements? Just like a “routine” traffic stop is never “ROUTINE”. Son of Sam, Ted Bundy, Richard Ramariez were all serial killers and all apprehended on a traffic stop. What I mean by this comparison is that you just never know what a person is capable of. Be thankful we have Police Officers/SWAT Officers that risk their lives for the greater good.
