LRAD Helps Police End Standoff Peacefully in Pittsburgh, PA

After neighbors call police and report shots fired, a suspect barricades himself in his house for several hours and threatens to harm anyone trying to enter. The Pittsburgh PD contact the suspect’s mother and have her record a message urging her son to come out of his house peacefully. Police use LRAD to broadcast the message into the house and the suspect immediately surrenders without further incident. (Courtesy of KDKA)
