PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh man has been charged with firing a gun at an occupied house after a police SWAT team responded to reports of a shootout.

Twenty-seven-year-old Anthony Carter was in custody awaiting arraignment early Tuesday on charges including discharging a firearm into an occupied structure. Online court records don’t list an attorney for him.

Police say they responded to a report of three men exchanging gunfire just after 8 p.m. Monday.

Nobody was hurt, but a house was struck by some gunfire.

The SWAT team surrounded a home where Carter allegedly went inside, but he wasn’t found there. Instead, police found him hiding in the basement of a neighboring home, about 11 p.m. Police also found a gun believed to be used in the shootout hidden under a baby on a couch.
