    PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) — Police in the southeast Arkansas city of Pine Bluff say a 107-year-old man is dead after SWAT officers shot back at him during a standoff at a home.

    Pine Bluff Lt. David Price tells KATV (http://bit.ly/17hlUlC ) that police officers called to the home Saturday were told Monroe Isadore had pointed a weapon at two people there.

    Officers had the threatened pair leave the home and approached a bedroom. Police say Isadore shot through the door at officers but missed hitting them.

    More officers were called, including a SWAT team that inserted a camera into the room and confirmed Isadore had a handgun.

    Police say SWAT officers released gas into the room when negotiations didn't work. They say Isadore shot at officers and they fired back, killing him.
