LAS VEGAS (Las Vegas Sun and MyNews3) -- Police shot a pantsless man with a butcher knife who had barricaded himself inside another person’s home Tuesday. 

The homeowner came home to find him watching his TV in underwear.

Metro Police responded to the home intrusion about 5 p.m. in the 9000 block of Crystal Rock Circle, near Gilespie Street and Pebble Road.

When police approached the pants-less man, he whipped out a butcher’s knife and refused to leave, police said.

Police tried negotiating with the suspect, but after about two hours SWAT officers entered the home to detain the suspect.

The suspect lunged at the officers and was shot. The suspect was transported to University Medical Center in serious condition/
