Pittsburgh police identified three men who were arrested Friday following a SWAT incident in the Northview Heights public housing complex.

Tywan Saunders-David and Michael David, both 18, and Edward Phillips, 19, were taken into custody, police said. They and an unidentified fourth man who was not arrested barricaded themselves inside a residence on Penfort Street when they saw U.S. Marshals and Pittsburgh Police approach about 7:20 a.m. Friday, according to police.

Police and U.S. Marshals were seeking Saunders-David as a suspect in a 2014 homicide.

Saunders-David was charged with felony firearm possession, according to Allegheny County court records. David was charged with marijuana possession.

There was no record of charges against Phillips in court records.

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.
