LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say a 107-year-old Arkansas man who died in a police standoff this weekend told officers months earlier that they would have to shoot him or throw him in jail before he went back home with his son-in-law.

Police reports obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday show that Monroe Isadore made the comments in June after he said his daughter and son-in-law didn't want him around.

Neither Isadore's daughter nor son-in-law returned phone messages left Tuesday.

Isadore died on Saturday in Pine Bluff after he opened fire on police and authorities shot him.

Authorities say they tried using a camera, negotiating tactics and gas before shooting Isadore.

Police say an officer involved in the shooting has been placed on paid, administrative leave.
