SWAT team shoots and kills 107-year-old man in standoff

Posted: Updated:

PINE BLUFF (KATV - A stand-off on Saturday left one man dead. S.W.A.T. Officers shot and killed the suspect after a standoff at a Pine Bluff home. 

Lt. David Price told channel 7 that when officers arrived at the home they learned that an aggravated assault had occurred against two people. The suspect, Monroe Isadore, who authorities say is 107-year-old old, pointed a weapon at them.

Authorities asked the two victims to leave the home and walked up to the bedroom door where Isadore was supposed to be. When officers identified themselves to the suspect he shot at them through the door but no officer was injured. Police then asked for backup. Police supervisors began negotiating with the suspect as soon as they arrived. Meanwhile, S.W.A.T. was also called out. 

Negotiations continued for some time and when S.W.A.T. arrived they were able to insert a camera into the room and confirmed Isadore had a handgun. They released gas into the room, after negotiation proved unsuccessful, in hopes Isadore would surrender peacefully. Once gas was released into the room, the suspect fired at the S.W.A.T. Officers. Shortly after, a S.W.A.T. entry team entered the room and Isadore continued to shoot. Officers fired back, killing him.

The investigation is still ongoing.
