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.
