Monroe Isadore, Arkansas man, age 107, killed in police standoff and shootout
A 107-year-old man was killed in Arkansas after shooting at SWAT officers.
KATV reports that officers responded to the home of Monroe Isadore on a domestic disturbance call after he had threatened two people by pointing a weapon at them.
Officers had the pair leave the home for their own safety and approached a bedroom looking for Isadore.
When the officers announced who they were, Isadore shot through the door at them but missed hitting them, said Pine Bluff Lt. David Price in a news release.
Negotiations with the elderly man began as a SWAT team managed to insert a camera into the home to confirm that Isadore had a handgun.
SWAT then released gas into the room, which police say caused Isadore to fire at officers. A SWAT entry team entered the room where, Isadore continued to shoot.
Officers fired back, killing him.
Deputy Coroner Eric Belcher pronounced Isadore dead from multiple gunshot wounds, according to MSN News. No officers were injured in the shootout.
