Authorities say a 107-year-old man threatened two people with a gun and shot at police through a door before he was killed in a shootout with a police SWAT team today at a home in Pine Bluff, Ark.
The fatal shots were fired on Saturday night after Pine Bluff police responded to a report that the man, Monroe Isadore, pointed a gun at two people in the home in Pine Bluff, a city of roughly 48,000 people about 45 miles south of Little Rock, according to police who confirmed local TV reports.
When police arrived at the home on Saturday afternoon, they removed the two people from the house and then entered to begin negotiations. Isadore then shot at them through the door, according to the reports confirmed by police.
No officers were struck, and police called for backup, including a Special Weapons and Tactics unit.
