“The neighbor ended up getting video of the man fleeing the scene. So we did have a clothing description of the driver,” said Police Chief Isaac Daniele.

Daniele told KDKA he called for backup from Braddock Police. The officer that arrived found the suspect on Reeves Way.

“As soon as he saw the Braddock police car, he started shooting at him,” Daniele said.

The chief said those bullets only hit the cop car. The suspect then took off, prompting an all-out search from nearly a dozen neighboring departments.

“A dog tracked some snow prints to an abandoned home up here on Lobinger. County officers tracked the rest of it and realized there was a man barricaded in one of the houses up on the hill,” Daniele said.

After SWAT and negotiators took over, that suspect was taken into custody and will be charged.

Daniele told KDKA the man did have a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but it is not life-threatening. Medics did check him out on scene.

During the course of the investigation, the car from the original call was reported stolen.
