MCKEESPORT (KDKA) – One man is in custody following a home invasion and hours-long standoff in McKeesport.

According to police, the incident started around 11 p.m. at an apartment building in the 1800 block of Bailie Avenue.

Two men and a woman were watching the Kansas City Chiefs-New England Patriots game when two other men forced their way into the home.

One of the suspects had a gun and allegedly beat the two men in the home with it.

A neighbor called 911 to report a disturbance. When police arrived, no one would come out of the home. At that time, the SWAT team was called and the suspect eventually came out.

He has been identified as Woodrow Harrison, 33, of Carrick.

Police recovered a gun and a half-pound of marijuana from inside the house.

Carrick is an ex-felon and was not to be in possession of a firearm. He is facing several charges.

The victims were unable to identify the second suspect.
