    Default 107 year old man killed by SWAT team after a standoff

    107-year-old man killed by SWAT team in ArkansasRead more: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/09/08...#ixzz2eMC3ovWA

    Police in Pine Bluff, Arkansas say a 107-year-old man was killed in a shootout with a SWAT team Saturday afternoon.

    Investigators say that local police responded to a complaint of aggravated assault against Monroe Isadore, who allegedly pointed a gun at two people at a home on West 16th Street in Pine Bluff. When police approached the bedroom door where Isadore was holed up, he fired one shot through the door. No one was hit.

    The SWAT team was called in and negotiations with Isadore began. The SWAT team confirmed that Isadore was armed with a handgun by inserting a camera into the bedroom through a window.

    After negotiations were unsuccessful, the SWAT team pumped gas in the room from outside the bedroom window, hoping that Isadore would surrender peacefully. Instead, Isador fired more shots at a SWAT entry team, who threw a "distraction device" into the room after breaching the door. Isadore continued shooting at the entry team, who finally shot and killed him.

    Local police said that the investigation is ongoing, but provided no further details.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    If a SWAT team can't take down a 107 year old man without killing him we have a major problem in this country.

    Sad.

    US police kill 107-year-old suspect in home shootout


    Police were called to this home in Pine Bluff after reports that a man was threatening two people with a gun

    A 107-year-old man was killed in a shootout with police, after he held two people at gunpoint in the US state of Arkansas, authorities said.

    Officers were called to a home in the city of Pine Bluff following reports that the man, named as Monroe Isadore, was threatening the pair with a gun.

    They were brought to safety before police tried to arrest the suspect.

    US media has reported that the violence began when Mr Isadore's daughter approached him about moving house.

    Pauline Lewis, who lived with Mr Isadore and accompanied his daughter on Saturday when she asked him to consider moving to an apartment, said he became increasingly confused and irate and began brandishing a hand gun.

    "He was very angry. He got hostile. He was gonna kill somebody," Pauline Lewis told KTHV.

    Officials said they had tried to negotiate with Mr Isadore but were forced to call reinforcements after he shot at them through the closed bedroom door.

    During the course of the negotiations a Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team was able to determine that he was armed with a handgun by inserting a camera into the room where he was holed up.

    When the negotiations broke down, SWAT officers threw gas into the room and tried to open the door, police say.

    But the centenarian is said to have fired at the officers as they entered the room. Officers returned fire, killing him, according to the reports confirmed by police.

    No police were injured in the incident.

    The coroner later confirmed Mr Isadore's age.

    Pine Bluff is a city of about 50,000 people, located in the heart of a rich agricultural area in the Arkansas River Basin.

    It has been repeatedly ranked by research and publishing company Morgan Quitno Press as one of the most dangerous metropolitan areas in the US and is included on the Forbes list of America's 10 most impoverished cities.

    Figures released by the US Census Bureau in 2010 show that there were around 53,000 people over 100 years old in the country, and only 8% of them were older than 104.

    I don't care how old the guy was, he was a threat to others and got what he deserved.

    I wonder if he was holding the two people he pointed a gun as hostages.

    Very sad.

    We just had an incident up here where police tazered an 80 year old woman with dementia because she was walking down the street with a knife.

    in all fairness to the cops it's not like they just went in and shot the guy. They tried like hell to get him in other ways. You can't ask cops to get continually shot at and not return fire at some point. A 107 year old shooting at you is no less dangerous than a 17 year old shooting at you.

    What if it was a blind 17 year old?

    Actually that would be easy. You take an object and throw it opposite of where you are standing, and when the blind guy starts shooting in that direction you sneak up behind him (he won't hear you either due to the noise from the gunfire) and slap the fuck out of him, knocking the gun from his no-seeing ass and save everybody.

    Now I see why we want to arm blind people. They are easy targets.

    If I am ever in a gunfight I hope it's with a blind person.

    you know, it was Saturday, if the police had waited long enough, Lawrence Welk would have come on and they could have waltzed right in there like Bobby and Cissy and brought the whole thing to a close
