'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The Allegheny County Police Bomb Squad and a SWAT team from the North Hills were sent to the Rural Ridge neighborhood of Indiana Township on Thursday night after a man reportedly barricaded himself in his house.

The house is located on Arbor Ridge Court, a cul-de-sac containing a handful of houses off of Little Deer Creek Road.

Police were called to the scene shortly before 9 p.m., according to Allegheny County 911. No injuries were reported in the first three hours of the incident.

The man's neighbors, who would not give their names, said they were ordered to evacuate their home about 11:45 p.m.

They said the man apparently lives alone following the death of his mother roughly a year ago.

A dispatcher said the North Hills Special Response Team, in effect a SWAT team, was assisting the county bomb squad and Indiana Township police.
