Pittsburgh's SWAT team twice responded to calls on Tustin Street in Pittsburgh's Uptown on Thursday about 10:30 p.m. and around 3 a.m. Friday, according to the Trib's news partner WPXI.

The first call involved a domestic situation involving a man and a mother with three children, which escalated into at least one gunshot fired in the home, according to WPXI.

Pittsburgh police told the news station that the mother and children were not injured and ran out of the home. Then the SWAT team was at the house for several hours and determined at some point that the man was no longer in the house, according to WPXI.

Police then returned to Tustin Street around 3 a.m. Friday and took a man into custody.

It's unclear if the two incidents are related, WPXI said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
