A Pittsburgh police SWAT team fired several rounds of tear gas on Thursday evening into a home in Beltzhoover, where they believed a man armed with an assault rifle had taken refuge.

Montez Dixon, 18, was not inside his mother's home in the 300 block of Michigan Avenue when the SWAT team entered, and police continued to search the neighborhood, city police Lt. Larry Scirotto said.

Police were called when several neighbors reported that Dixon was running through the neighborhood, carrying the weapon, Scirotto said.

He said Dixon is supposed to be on house arrest in Ellwood City. Dixon will be charged with violating his probation there, as well as new charges filed in connection with last night's incident.
