PINE BLUFF, Ark. – A 107-year-old man was killed after SWAT officers shot back at him during a standoff at a home, police in the southeastern Arkansas city of Pine Bluff said Sunday.
Police were called to the home Saturday afternoon and said they found Monroe Isadore had threatened two people with a weapon.
Officers had the pair leave the home and approached a bedroom looking for Isadore. When the officers announced who they were, Isadore shot through the door at them but missed, Pine Bluff Lt. David Price said in a news release.
Supervisors started negotiating with Isadore and continued after SWAT officers arrived.
After negotiations failed, SWAT officers entered the home, made their way to the bedroom and threw a “distraction device” into the room, Price said.
He said Isadore began to fire at the officers and they fired back, killing him.
