SWAT Called to Assist With A Male in Crisis

Date: September 7, 2020
Incident Type: SWAT
Location: Zone 1

Pittsburgh Police from Zone 1 responded to the 1800 block of Fairlee Street for a male in crisis just around 3:20 p.m.

When they arrived on scene, the male had barricaded himself inside his home and threatened anyone who came near the house.

SWAT was called out of an abundance of caution. Negotiators communicated with the male, and safely gained access inside the house.

The male surrendered without incident and was treated by medics before being transported for additional assistance.
