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.
