    Family Searching for Answers After Son is Shot by Troopers

    "I want people to know that Derek wasn't this type of person," said Derek's father Michael DeGroat. "Derek was about helping other people."

    Michael DeGroat says his son loved his country and didn't deserve to die at the hands of state police.

    A search warrant indicates troopers told DeGroat to drop his weapons and when he spun towards them, they fired. Court papers show two rifles and a shotgun was found near DeGroat.

    "I think it was a seed planted in their minds that he could be dangerous. His girlfriend told them that if the police showed up, he was going to kill them. That's just not true."
