HAZELWOOD (KDKA) — Pittsburgh Police and SWAT were called to the scene of a domestic incident in Hazelwood on Tuesday night.
According to police, a female victim was claiming a man inside a house on Winston Street had assaulted her with a handgun. She said she wasn’t sure if he or anyone else was still inside the home.
When police demanded anyone inside leave the home, they received no answer. As a precaution, they called SWAT officers to the scene.
“SWAT ended up going in, they checked the basement and the first floor with a K-9 unit and some technology, and they did not find the individual suspect in the house,” said Maurice Matthews, Pittsburgh Police Public Information Officer.
Officers then searched the home and found it was empty.
The woman was taken to a hospital to be evaluated.
Police are investigating this incident.
