Pittsburgh police take 4 suspects into custody after South Side standoff

Jan. 23—Four male suspects wanted on warrants were taken into custody Monday morning by Pittsburgh police following a standoff at a home in the city's South Side.

The incident began shortly before 1:30 a.m. when police said they spotted one of the suspects on a deck of a residence in the 2100 block of Carey Way.

The suspect ran inside the home when he saw the officers and refused to come out, triggering a SWAT response, police said.

Police said they believed there were other suspects and multiple firearms inside.

By 4 a.m., police said, the suspects had surrendered and were taken to police headquarters for questioning. Officers said weapons were recovered once a search warrant was obtained for the residence.

Seven females also exited the residence and were released after being identified and evaluated by medics.

The home was in use as a short-term rental, police said. Tribune-Review news partner WPXI-TV reported that a music video was being shot on the premises.
