Metro police said an officer-involved shooting on Thursday morning occurred while officers were executing a search warrant connected to an investigation into child pornography.

Police entered the residence at 7100 Pirates Cover, near Westcliff Drive and Antelope Way on the west side of Las Vegas, at 9 a.m.

While SWAT was searching the residence, they began focusing on a closed bedroom door. Officers opened the door to find a man pointing a handgun at them. Officers fired at the suspect and he dropped the handgun.

No one was stuck or injured in the shooting.

Police later identified the man with the gun as 31-year-old Patrick Malone. He was taken into custody and charged with assault on a protected person with a deadly weapon and resisting a public officer with a deadly weapon.
