A crowd grew unruly at a western Pennsylvania toy distribution event, prompting the Salvation Army to shut the program down for a day.
Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard says in a statement that police were called to the North Ave. toy giveaway at about noon Friday. Authorities reported that there was a long waiting line, and when some people cut in front the crowd became unruly.

People surged into the facility when the doors opened and the Salvation Army did not have enough staff to control the situation, so the distribution was shut down for a day.
There were no arrests or injuries, and police cleared the scene just after 1 p.m.
