Police say they called the SWAT team in after hearing what sounded like Schwab loading a rifle in the basement. They say he threatened officers.
The SWAT team used gas and a bean bag round to subdue Schwab after nearly six hours of negotiations.
Schwab's wife and children fled the home. No injuries were reported.
McKees Rocks is about 4 miles from downtown Pittsburgh.
