Police were called to the home Saturday afternoon about a disturbance and say officers arrived to find that Monroe Isadore apparently had threatened two people by pointing a weapon at them.
Officers had the pair leave the home for their safety and approached a bedroom looking for Isadore. When the officers announced who they were, Isadore shot through the door at them but missed hitting them, Pine Bluff Lt. David Price said in a news release.
The officers retreated to a safer area, and supervisors and additional help were called, Price said. Supervisors started negotiating with Isadore and continued after SWAT officers arrived at the home, about 45 miles southeast of Little Rock.
When it was clear that the negotiations weren’t working, SWAT officers released gas into the room from outside a bedroom window, Price said.
SWAT officers entered the home, made their way to the bedroom and threw a “distraction device” into the room, Price said.
Price said Isadore eventually began to fire at the officers and they fired back, killing him.
