SWAT team shoots and kills 107 year old man in standoff

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.

107 and he could still stand and hold a gun?

Amazing!

“..he shot at them through the door..”

He probably was thinking “...well, I don’t have a shotgun like Mrs. Biden, but this pistol might just do the trick.”

A 107 year old was alone in the house, and they couldn’t wait him out?

Guess his schtick got old.

Alzhiemers made him forget who the law is and parkinsons made him a lousy shot.

I’m divided on this one. On the one hand, it does sound the officers made a more-than-reasonable effort to take him alive. On the other hand, the poster who suggested that they could have waited for him to fall asleep has a point. Gripping hand, if someone was shooting at me, the fact that he was 107 years old really wouldn’t be a factor in determining my response.

RE :”They couldn’t wait for him to fall asleep?”

My grandma died finally at 101+ a long past due blessing for her,
At her 100th birthday party family reunion she just slept in her wheelchair.
She did blow out the candles after I said to everyone ‘I bet she wont’. She was listening.

107 is amazing.

Me too! The only indisputable fact I can see is that the cops KILLED a man that had been on the planet for 107 years!

Will wait to see what develops before deciding to not TOTALLY blame the cops!

Every life is precious, and it’s sad he had to go this way after living so long.

Probably just about everybody’s guess is that it was dementia.

My Great Grandmother had 6 sisters; all lived well into their 90’s; one of them recently passed at 104.

Every few months there would be some sort of “crisis”...she would have pneumonia or something and the Docs would say she likely wouldn’t last through the night. Next morning she would be up, out of bed, and looking to go to breakfast. It actually got to be amusing...someone would send an email to family members....and we would all go “well, I’m sure she’ll be fine!”

When she finally passed away, the staff at the nursing home said it was obvious that she was getting up for the day and just died instantly...sitting on the edge of the bed with her slippers on. They went to check when she didn’t show up as usual for breakfast. Sharp as a tack, for the most part, to the end.

Did the Cops discuss the situation with the Obamacare Death Panel before opening fire?

They could have just given him a Pill according to Obama.

That was my Stella.

Doc always wrote her off.

Everytime we left the hospital we went on a trip.

Traveled 9 or 10 times in her last year.

Her little body was done at 101 and 5 months.

People say “Sorry”.

I laugh and tell em she had it comin.

Death eventuallys knocks at the door.

It’s a Great Life if You Don’t Weaken.

Don’t take life so seriously. No one is getting out of this thing alive.

My Grandpa used to joke that he was going to reach 100 “if it killed him.” He died less than six months short of it, and I’m sure he’s STILL ticked off about it...LOL!

That is interesting. How did they screw the age so bad? If a 52 yr old who had already injured two people was holed up in a room, firing through the door, and not negotiating, it would not be shocking that the SWAT team took him down.

this is going to be an interesting story to follow and see what is really true

107 yrs old. No one in danger. Camera in the room. The guy wasn't going to bust out, carjack some Nuns and go on a killing spree.

I'll bet theses guys are proud.
