Hostage situation inside Louisiana bank ends with two dead.

(KTVE) A hostage situation in a St. Joseph, Louisiana bank is over.

Louisiana State Police say the suspect and one of his hostages are dead.

A second hostage is hospitalized with gunshot wounds.

Police say shortly after midnight they entered Tensas State Bank after the suspect, identified as 20-year-old Faued Abdo Ahmed, shot the two hostages.

They then opened fire on Ahmed, killing him.
