Questions persist after Ark. SWAT team fatally shoots 107-year-old man during weekend standoff

Authorities in Arkansas halted a standoff this weekend when they shot a man who opened fire at them.

But when police announced that the incident left a 107-year-old man dead, it sparked a flurry of questions about how and why the life of such an elderly man could end at the hands of a SWAT team.

Authorities in Pine Bluff said they used negotiating tactics, a camera and gas before they shot Monroe Isadore on Saturday.

Still, that hasn't addressed concerns from some described Isadore on Monday as a pleasant, churchgoing man who was hard of hearing.

A police report The Associated Press obtained Monday said an Arkansas woman told officers she had gone to the house where Isadore was living temporarily to help him move to a new home.
