Patriot Broadcast From the Trenches Schedule 

SWAT team breaks door, windows at wrong home

WTAE News Pittsburgh – by Bob Hazen

PITTSBURGH —A Pittsburgh woman is furious at police after the SWAT team knocked down her front door and shattered her windows while looking for a homicide suspect in the home next door to her.

“I feel violated,” Carla Glover told WTAE.  “There’s not even words  to describe what I was feeling.”  

Police were searching for a suspect in the early Saturday morning shooting death of 21-year-old Steven Lee Jr. of McKees Rocks.  Lee was killed after a fight on a “party bus” on Chartiers Avenue in Sheraden.

The SWAT team later surrounded a row of homes on Sutherland Street.  They were apparently looking for someone in Glover’s neighbor’s apartment, but home video from people who live nearby shows officers dropping chairs off of Glover’s porch and standing in her broken down front door.  Her windows were also shattered.

Glover knew nothing about what was happening at her home until she received a call from police.

“I received a call from an officer from Zone 6, a female officer, asking me if I could come to my residence because they were in pursuit of a homicide suspect that ran in my neighbor’s house, and my window was broken in the process,” Glover said.

She found a lot more than just a broken window.  Glass covered half of her living room, and pieces of the window are still stuck in her couch and carpet.  The frame of the front door was destroyed.

Glover is especially upset because her two grandchildren live with her, and could have been in the living room when the windows were blown out.

“I’m looking for an explanation for how you do surveillance on a house all night, and then you hit the wrong one from the front,” Glover said.

Cmdr. Scott Schubert said the SWAT team targeted Glover’s home because they were mistakenly told that there was a search warrant for her house, but they immediately stopped trying to gain entry when a homicide detective told them there was no warrant. He said two police cars stayed outside the house to make sure no one entered through the damaged front door until Glover or a relative arrived, and a city public works crew was sent to the house to repair the window.

    After an intensive internal investigation, it was determined that the officers acted in accordance with departmental policy. Additionally, the resident was found to be liable for the equipment and time utilized in the raid. The city will immediately send a bill to the resident, which, if not paid before the deadline (in this case, a generously extended deadline of 12 hours), the city will foreclose on the home.
