107-year-old man killed by SWAT team in Arkansas

Monroe Isadore died in a shootout with officers after allegedly pointing a gun at two people at a home in Pine Bluff.

Police called to an Arkansas home exchanged gunfire with a 107-year-old suspect accused of pointing a gun at two people.

Local police responded to a complaint of aggravated assault against Monroe Isadore, at a home on West 16th Street, in Pine Bluff.

The suspect allegedly fired through a door at officers as they approached a bedroom at the home on Saturday afternoon.

Officers slipped tear gas into the room through a bedroom window, followed by a distraction device, leading to Isadore firing further rounds at them. Officers then returned fire and killed Isadore. No officers were hit by the gunfire.

According to The Pine Bluff Commercial newspaper, Deputy Coroner Eric Belcher pronounced Isadore dead at 7:23 p.m. apparently from multiple gunshot wounds. His body will be sent to the state medical examiner’s office for autopsy, Jefferson County Coroner Chad Kelley said.
