Louisiana stand-off ends in gunfire
LOUISIANA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A nearly 10-hour standoff at a bank in rural Louisiana has ended in gunfire.
The suspect shot two hostages before he was gunned down by police.
One hostage has died, the other is in critical condition.
Investigators say they're learning more Wednesday morning about why the suspect stormed the bank Tuesday afternoon.
They say the man was mentally unbalanced and heard voices.
Police say he never intended to rob the bank, rather, he was trying to make a statement and demanded officials remove a device he says was implanted in his head.
