WASHINGTON, District of Columbia (AFP) - A 107-year-old Arkansas man was killed during a shootout with US police and Swat team members, local authorities said.
Police were responding to a disturbance at a house in Pine Bluff city Saturday afternoon and determined that suspect Monroe Isadore had pointed a gun at two people, according to a statement given to local media.
The two victims were led out of the house. As the officers approached the bedroom where Isadore had taken cover, he shot through the door.
Isadore failed to injure any of the officers with his gunfire. Supervisors began negotiating with Isadore and a Special Weapons and Tactics team was called out.
