Pittsburgh Police responded to the 7100 block of Mount Vernon Street for a father inside a home and armed with a small child around 10:30 p.m.
It was reported to police that the male took the child at gunpoint.
When Zone 5 officers arrived, they located a vehicle the male was last seen in. Police gave verbal commands for the male to exit the home, and could hear a baby crying.
With a priority of life, SWAT made entry into the home and located a baby.
A continued search of the home resulted in the male not to be inside.
The child was not injured and returned to the mother. The investigation is ongoing.
