Operations back to normal at Gateway SD

A Philadelphia man accused of threatening to shoot police was charged on Monday when Monroeville police apprehended him at the Days Inn.

Daniel F. Hendrie, 61, was arraigned on two counts of terroristic threats after police traced his calls to a room at the hotel on Moss Side Boulevard, less than a mile from the Gateway School District campus.

Officials placed district buildings on lockdown at 8:20 a.m. Monday as a precaution and said Hendrie's threats were unrelated to the schools. Normal operations resumed by 10:15 a.m.

Hendrie made several calls via cellphone to the Monroeville dispatch center late Sunday and early Monday threatening to “shoot it out” with police, Monroeville police Chief Steve Pascarella said.

Hendrie's preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 1 before magisterial Judge Jeffrey Herbst.

Days Inn officials declined to comment.

Hendrie was in the Allegheny County Jail, unable to post bond.

No attorney was listed for him, according to Allegheny County records.
