PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - One person was in custody after multiple SWAT teams were on the scene in Pittsburgh's Brookline neighborhood.
The Allegheny County Police Department had a SWAT team present, and the Pittsburgh Police were on the 1000 block of Brookline Boulevard on Thursday morning as well.
Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich says Allegheny County Police tried to serve a warrant on 44-year-old Scott Michael Kundar, who's charged with harassment and stalking after a county police investigation into a series of threatening phone calls to the Allegheny County Department of Human Services.
Kundar indicated to police that he was armed, unwilling to surrender and holding a hostage.
Eventually, negotiators were able to determine there was no hostage and Kundar surrendered peacefully.
