Justin McIntire Cause of Death
Swan was shot and killed by police near Brushton Avenue after shooting at police, authorities said. Police had been searching for Swan since Sunday night after he was wanted on weapons-related probation violations. State police saw him on Route 28 near Cheswick Sunday night, but he fled the traffic stop, authorities said. On Monday morning, Swan led police on a manhunt.
Harrison Township police seized his car, but Swan fled on foot. He was discovered by the police around 2 p.m. near the Brackenridge-Tarrentum border and shots were exchanged at two locations, where McIntire was killed and the other officer wounded.
Police issued a “be on the lookout” alert for Lamont’s stolen vehicle, a silver 2014 Subaru Legacy. Police said the people who were kidnapped by Swan were not injured. This was not the first time Swan had allegedly shot at law enforcement. In 2014, he was arrested and later convicted of shooting a K-9 officer in East Liberty who pulled him over for carrying a weapon. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three years in prison.
In 2017, he was reconvicted and sentenced to another three years for armed robbery and inflicting grievous bodily injury on another person. Most recently, in 2019, he pleaded guilty to drug sales and was sentenced to another year in prison. McIntire, 46, was named chief in 2018 after rising through the ranks of patrol officer and sergeant.
