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.
