Neighbors inside the Alondra Condominium Complex are still questioning Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's deadly use of force against 43-year-old Stanley Gibson who was shot dead in his car early Monday morning.
"At the very worst situation he could have caused some property damage but in my book property damage doesn't equal a life," said Carl Dorn, who's apartment is located behind where the shooting occurred.
Metro says officers were originally reporting to a break-in call.
But Gibson's wife says he was a Gulf War veteran who was disoriented from not taking his prescribed medication, and tried entering the wrong apartment.
A rare three-page news release detailing the shooting came out Friday, saying officers tried to communicate with Gibson over a PA system for 30 minutes, to get him to come out of his car.
When that failed officers planned to break Gibson's window with a bean bag gun and pepper spray him.
But instead when a patrol officer fired the bean-bag, almost immediately a second officer fired seven rounds from a rifle striking and killing Gibson.
Allen Lichtenstein with the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada believes the information should be coming from reports and not from Metro's public relations department.
"Trying to make metro look as good as possible, which is pretty hard to do in this situation and try to make this person sound like he was really dangerous," Lichtenstein told FOX5.
Metro says the two patrol officers who were involved in this incident have not yet been interviewed by homicide investigators.
But Lichtenstein says that's not the whole truth.
"The reason the officers haven't been interviewed is because the union has told them don't cooperate with investigators," Lichtenstein said.
This and other high profile incidents have both the ACLU and the NAACP asking for a federal probe into Metro's practices and tactics.
"And things like this public relations piece just seems to indicate that there really does need to be some significant structural changes in terms of the culture there," Lichtenstein said.
