A man who barricaded himself in a camper in Pittsburgh’s Allentown neighborhood after allegedly firing a gun during an argument with his wife surrendered Monday morning after Pittsburgh’s SWAT team deployed a gas canister to end a stand-off.
Police aren’t releasing the man’s name, but say he fired two shots during an argument with his wife at a residence in Carnegie. Police spokeswoman Sonya Toler said the couple is in the process of divorcing and that nobody was injured by the shots, which were fired inside a house. The man then came to Pittsburgh and retreated into a camper parked in the city’s Allentown neighborhood.
The SWAT team surrounded the camper about 3:30 a.m. Monday, and the man surrendered about four hours later.
The man was taken to a hospital because of his exposure to the gas.
