Carla Glover’s Pittsburgh home was mistakenly invaded by a SWAT team searching for murder suspect Michael Lyons. The team broke down the home’s door and smashed numerous windows.
Charges of homicide and possession of an unlicensed firearm were filed against Lyons, 22, after he allegedly killed 21-year-old Steven Lee Jr. during a “party bus” brawl in Sheraden, Pennsylvania last weekend.
A warrant has been issued for Lyons’ arrest but his current whereabouts are unknown at this time.
Glover was not home at the time of the invasion. She was unaware of the SWAT team’s error until she was contacted by police who let her know they had mistakenly broken her windows. Upon returning home, she found her patio furniture thrown around her lawn and her door and windows in bad shape. A watchful neighbor recorded the incident.
The homeowner has said that not only is she angry, but that she also feels violated, according to The Inquisitr. Glover’s two grandchildren live at the home and she is thankful that they were not around when the SWAT team made their mistake. She does not know whether she will be reimbursed for the damage to her house.
Police have yet to explain exactly why they invaded Glover’s home in their pursuit of the murder suspect.
