Maybe it was an attempt to die by police gunfire and maybe it wasn’t. The 107-year-old male in Pine
Bluff, Arkansas reportedly pulled a gun on two roommates who called police. Police believed their story. Isadore was in a bedroom behind a door and refused to be talked down. He shot through the door at officers. Gas was thrown into the bedroom through a window and S.W.A.T. entered the room. He continued firing according to this report and died by S.W.A.T. gunfire. If I was 107-years-old, I might want to prompt my demise too.
I wonder why Police didn’t just wait this out. He was 107 years-old, meaning he needed frequent potty breaks, had to eat, had to take meds – whatever. There should have been a more convenient time to subdue him, but then, I don’t know all the details.
