Just before 4:30 a.m., Pittsburgh Police from Zone 1 responded to a report that an adult male with outstanding warrants was seen entering an apartment building in the 600 block of Pressley Street.

The adult male actor had recently made threats to building security that he was in possession of at least one gun.  

When police arrived, the male barricaded himself in an apartment. SWAT operators were called out and attempted to make contact with the male. They were shortly able to do so.

At 5:35 a.m., he surrendered without further incident and was taken into custody. He was then transported to ACJ.

Pittsburgh Fire and EMS also responded to the scene.
