LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- A Las Vegas man armed with two rifles and a handgun was shot by Metro police when they responded to a 9-1-1 call.

On Friday, the county took a close look at why police shot Patrick Heki last December.

The hearing was very emotional for Patrick Heki's parents. Daniel Unger says his son surrendered before police shot him multiple times. 

Police say Heki was suicidal that night. He walked outside the apartment with a pistol in his hand and two rifles strapped on his shoulders. Police say Heki fired at officers in the middle of the Mountain Vista apartments and officers returned fire.

His father disagrees.

"They outright murdered him. He was not a threat," Unger said

Unger says he plans to take legal action against Metro police because his son didn't hurt anyone and didn't point his weapons at police.

The district attorney's office will issue a final report in a few weeks.
