UPDATE: New details released in death of man, 107, killed by police in standoff

Posted: Updated:
PINE BLUFF (KATV) -

The Pine Bluff Police Department has released new information about a stand off that resulted in the death of a 107-year-old man.

S.W.A.T. officers shot and killed Monroe Isadore, 107, after a standoff at a Pine Bluff home Saturday afternoon.

According to a police report released Sunday night, police responded to a domestic disturbance call. When they arrived, Laurie Barlow told police she had "come by the house to pick up [Isadore] to take him to his new home they had just got through cleaning up."

According to the report, Isadore locked himself in his room and refused to come out, and that when his granddaughter finally got him to open the door he pointed a gun and her and stated, "You better stop breaking into my house."

Police arrived and attempted to make contact with Isadore, according to the report. During the attempt, Isadore fired one shot in the direction of an officer.

The report states the officers then retreated and waited for a negotiator to arrive. 

When the negotiator was unable to make contact, S.W.A.T. was called.

S.W.A.T. officers inserted a camera into the room and confirmed Isadore had a handgun. 

They released gas into the room 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. team entered the room and Isadore continued to shoot. Officers fired back, killing him.

The investigation is still ongoing.
 

Pine Bluff Police Department is expected to hold a press conference on Monday to shed more details about this eye-opening situation.
