A Dayton man said he woke up to a SWAT team in his bedroom and a gun to his head this morning, but said he wasn’t the man authorities sought.

The man, along with another male and a female resident, were briefly detained at the scene and were in handcuffs as they sat on a sidewalk in front of the residence. Law enforcement officers then released them and left.

The man told media at the scene the three had recently moved into the house in the 1600 block of Gondert Avenue. He said authorities realized the wanted suspects had moved out, and the three were released.
