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.
