SWAT Responds for Male with Warrants in East Liberty

Date: October 24, 2023
Incident Type: SWAT
Location: Zone 5
Summary:

Just before 5 a.m., Pittsburgh Police from Zone 5 were dispatched to a residence in the 200 block of N.Beatty Street for a male who had called 9-1-1 saying he was wanted by police. When officers arrived he refused to exit the residence. 

SWAT responded to the scene as the male had recently fled from police and made threats toward them. He also had an arrest warrant for a domestic incident, as well as an active 302 warrant.

Negotiators were able to work with family members and quickly establish communications with the male in order to secure a peaceful surrender.

The male was taken into custody without incident just before 6 a.m. and transported to WPIC.
