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.
