A hostage situation in rural Louisiana lasts nearly 12 hours before police were forced to end it. Andrew Spencer reports it wasn't the ending they had hoped for. Police set a midnight deadline to move in. "His indication was he was through and he was going to kill a hostage, says Col. Michael Edmonson of the Louisiana State Police. Within 15 minutes, police made the decision and moved in with a SWAT team, but the man had a handgun trained on the two remaining hostages. "Shot both of them, upper body shots, as we moved in," says Col. Edmonson. Police tried to be hopeful, saying at least one of the victims showed a pulse as the two were taken to hospitals. The ordeal started just after noon on Tuesday, when a gunman walked into this bank in the small town of St. Joseph, a town of just 1,200 in northeaster Louisiana. Based on what police found in the man's apartment, they say robbery was never his intent. "Book on negotiation, questions that would be asked of him, things that would be expected of him," says Col. Edmonson. Police say the suspect, 20-year-old Fuaed Abdo Ahmed, was looking to make a statement. Born in California and the child of Yemeni immigrants, he moved to northeastern Louisiana with his family, after his father was killed about 12 years ago. Police say his demands were strange and described him as a paranoid schizophrenic. "Implanted into his brain, sa9d he wanted that out," says Col. Edmonson. It was clear to police that negotiations were no longer possible. "Towards the end of it was hanging up on the negotiators, became complacent," says Col. Edmonson. So they had to move in, they say, killing the gunman, but not able to keep the other two hostages from being shot.
