   ST. JOSEPH, La. (AP) - Louisiana State Police superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson says one of the hostages shot during a hostage standoff at a rural bank has died.

   The suspect had initially taken three hostages Tuesday afternoon in St. Joseph but later released one of them.

   The gunman - identified as 20-year-old Fuaed (FOO-od) Abdo Ahmed - later told negotiators he would kill the remaining two hostages. Edmonson says state police entered the building just before midnight Tuesday and that's when the suspect shot the hostages before being shot and killed by police.

   Edmonson said he didn't have any other information about the hostage who died. The condition of the other hostage who was shot is unknown.

A suspected drug dealer is dead after he was shot by police on the St. Louis riverfront. It happened at Leonor K. Sullivan and Biddle about 6 o'clock Thursday evening.

Police say it began when the Port Authority spotted a suspicious vehicle in the area. When police ran the plates, they discovered several outstanding warrants.

Police say the suspect tried to grab an officer's gun as he approached the vehicle. There was a struggle and the officer fired one shot, hitting the man in the chest.

The suspect was rushed to the hospital where he died. His name hasn't been released.

Police say they found a gun in the suspect's vehicle.

The 28-year-old officer is now on routine administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation. St. Louis Police Captain Michael Sack says the officer has been on the force for about two years.

This is the second officer involved shooting in the City of St. Louis this year.
