People who work in Three Gateway Center in downtown Pittsburgh said they noticed few changes to security following a hostage situation in the building on Friday.
"It was pretty crazy," said Allan Cronen. "I hung around here for quite a while until we realized this could go on all day or longer."
Cronnen said he works on the 23rd floor and was surprised to see no change to the security of the building when he returned to work Monday.
"This morning I was expecting an ID check, where you work. But there was nothing. Absolutely nothing. So I was totally surprised by that," Cronnen said.
Some employees said they did notice that the back entrance to the building was locked and extra security guards were on scene, however some think more should be done.
"More could be done but I don't want to see things get out of hand to the point where common sense isn't being used anymore," said Kevin Mahood.
Channel 11's Britney McGraw reported that security guards were patrolling the lobby and the building's surroundings.
The company that manages Three Gateway Center released a statement Monday morning saying, "Gateway Center is committed to safety. We continually work with local authorities to ensure we are prepared to immediately address emergency situations when they occur."
The statement went on to say, "Gateway Center was designed over 50 years ago to reflect the openness of the Pittsburgh community, and our goal is to balance the safety of our tenants with their interest in enjoying this type of environment.
We recognize that Friday's incident caused a lot of distress to the community. To ensure that our tenants and their guests maintain confidence in the safety of our environment, we have increased security in our buildings and will conduct a thorough review of our systems and make any necessary changes."
Crisis counselors were also on hand for anyone who needed them.
