UPDATE: November SWAT Incident in Brentwood
Christopher Lyons is in the courts system.
UPDATE: Christopher Lyons had a pretrial conference at the Allegheny County Courthouse on July 20 to face the charges of prohibited use of a firearm, making terroristic threats and aggravated assault. He will now face a non-jury trial for those charges at the same location, beginning on Sept. 21.
Following an investigation by Moon police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Christopher Lyons, 32, of 103 Beisner Ave., was charged in federal court on April 25 with robbing a Citizens Bank inside of a Moon Giant Eagle of $1,140.
The charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.
Following the November robbery, investigators confronted Lyons during an armed standoff in Brentwood after tracing the license plate number of a black Cadillac Escalade spotted by witnesses on Ohio River Boulevard.
Authorities said that Lyons underwent surgery at UPMC Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh after he stabbed himself in the neck, wrist and leg during the standoff. Moon police said that the standoff began after they arrived with a warrant to search Lyons' home on Beisner Avenue, just over the Whitehall Borough border, and that Lyons holed up inside the Beisner home after confronting officers with a gun and a knife.
