Police took a 59-year-old Shadyside man into custody Thursday morning because he threatened to commit “suicide by cop.”

Officers responded to an emergency call at an apartment building in the 200 block of Shady Avenue at about 9:10 a.m.

The street remained open, and no medics or SWAT operators were called, according to Allegheny County 911 operators.

The unidentified man is a veteran, police said, and suffers from mental health issues. He has had made similar threats before. He was taken into custody without incident shortly after 10 a.m. and transported to a VA facility.
