Police recovered about 150 guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition from a one-bedroom apartment following a four-hour standoff in suburban Pittsburgh.

McCandless police say officers arrested 52-year-old Russell Laing on Sunday morning. Officials say he confronted officers with an assault rifle around 1 a.m. as they responded to a medical call at an apartment building about 10 miles outside of Pittsburgh.

A SWAT team helped remove Laing from the apartment about four hours later and he was taken to a hospital for treatment. Laing faces charges including aggravated assault and making terroristic threats.

Police say Laing had more than a hundred guns, including assault weapons and antiques, and about 15,000 rounds of ammunition in his apartment.

It was not immediate clear if he had an attorney.
