Pittsburgh Police from Zone 5 responded to the 1200 block of Nolan Court for a domestic incident at 12:25 p.m.

Responding officers were met by a female outside of a residence who told police she came home and a male who was known to her was inside, and threatened her with a gun.

He forced her and a friend outside before closing the door behind him.

SWAT responded and used multiple verbal hails to convince him to exit the residence. Officers gained access to the home to search, but the male was no longer inside.

The investigation is ongoing.
