LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – A man wanted on pornography charges pointed a gun at law enforcement officers and was shot at before surrendering this morning.

Metro told News 3 that a man was being served a search warrant by Metro’s SWAT unit and a multi-jurisdictional task force in an apartment complex at 7100 Pirates Cove earlier today.

The man was in a back bedroom when officers entered the apartment. He reportedly pointed a gun at the officers, and two of them returned fire but did not hit the man. He then surrendered. It is unknown which agencies the officers who fired are employed by.

Metro said the man was being arrested on unspecified Internet pornography charges.

More details are expected to be released later today, officers said.
