2nd hostage shot in La. standoff dies in hospital
ST. JOSEPH, La. (AP) -- A second hostage shot in a standoff in a small Louisiana town has died.
Rapides Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Charla Ducote says LaDean McDaniel died Thursday morning at the hospital in Alexandria.
Authorities say 20-year-old Fuaed Abdo Ahmed took three bank employees hostage Tuesday in St. Joseph, but released one of them during negotiations. Police say he shot two other hostages -- killing Jay Warbington and wounding McDaniel-- when police stormed the Tensas State Bank.
Ahmed was shot and killed by police.
Authorities say Ahmed was angry and believed his ex-girlfriend's family had been responsible for their breakup and for putting a device in his head.
