Police kill 107-year-old man in standoff

09 September 2013, 09:52

Arkansas - Police in the southeast Arkansas city of Pine Bluff say a 107-year-old man is dead after police officers shot back at him during a standoff at a home.

Pine Bluff Lieutenant David Price tells KATV that police officers called to the home on Saturday were told Monroe Isadore had pointed a weapon at two people there.

Officers had the threatened pair leave the home and approached a bedroom. Police say Isadore shot through the door at officers but missed hitting them.

More officers were called, including a SWAT team that inserted a camera into the room and confirmed Isadore had a handgun.

Police say SWAT officers released gas into the room when negotiations didn't work. They say Isadore shot at officers and they fired back, killing him.
