Munhall police say an argument involving a gun led to a standoff that ended in a man’s arrest early Friday morning.

A man surrendered early Friday after a standoff with police, who were called to a Munhall home for a violent argument, according to Tribune-Review news partner WPXI.

Jamar Grimes, 25, of Pittsburgh is charged with aggravated assault, receiving stolen property, reckless endangerment and related offenses.

Police were called to a Louise Street home just before midnight after Grimes allegedly pistol whipped a woman and pointed the weapon at her face, according to a criminal complaint obtained by WPXI.

Another adult told police she locked herself and three children, all younger than 3, in a room during the incident, the station reported. Investigators found the gun, which had been reported stolen, during a search of the home after Grimes surrendered.

A March 6 preliminary hearing is set. No arraignment information was immediately available in online court records. Grimes did not have an attorney listed.

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.
