PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh Police have taken a suspect into custody following a SWAT incident Wednesday afternoon in Stanton Heights.
It all started around 1:30 p.m. at a home in the 5500 block of Celandine Street.
Police say they initially went to the home to issue a Protection from Abuse Order, or PFA, notice, and serve an arrest warrant to a man stemming from a domestic incident.
The SWAT team was called in as a precaution after unconfirmed reports of weapons in the home.
“The subject made some comments, and then an hour later, SWAT was called in to reinforce and keep the entire area safe,” said Pittsburgh Police spokeswoman Alicia George. “This is still a very active scene. At this time, there are no injuries, [and] nothing has occurred to pose any further threat.”
