Pittsburgh Police from Zone 5 responded to the 400 block of S. Fairmount Street for a male in crisis just after 6 p.m.
When they arrived on scene the male had barricaded himself inside his apartment and threatened to hurt himself.
SWAT was called out of an abundance of caution. Negotiators communicated with the male at different intervals before police managed to gain safe access to his apartment.
The man surrendered without incident and was treated by medics before being transported for additional assistance.
Tonight, the City-County Building is illuminated to recognize Poison Prevention Week and the 50th Anniversary of "Mr. Yuk" in partnership with Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
