Pine Bluff police kill 107-year-old man in armed SWAT confrontation

Posted By on Sun, Sep 8, 2013 at 6:30 AM

CNN reports that Pine Bluff police shot and killed a 107-year-old man after SWAT officers failed to negotiate a surrender.

The police said the man, Monroe Isadore, fired at them through a door. They were at the home because of reports that  two people there had been assaulted.

Officers slipped a camera into the room and saw Isadore had a handgun. When officers came through a window, Isadore fired at them, the police said. When they threw a distraction device, Isadore fired again, according to the report. Officers then returned the fire, killing Isadore with multiple wounds. No police were struck.

The fatal shooting happened around 7 p.m. at 1411 W 16th Avenue. The confrontation began about 4:25 p.m..

UPDATE: Fox 16 has talked to people who knew Isadore and will report tonight. A picture of him here, when he turned 104.
