Pine Bluff Lt. David Price said 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.
