UPDATE:  

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - KNOE 8 News has learned that LaDean McDaniel has passed away today.

Rapides Regional Medical Center confirmed the death to our sister station KALB this morning.

McDaniel was shot on Tuesday at the Tensas State Bank branch in St. Joseph in a hostage situation involving Fuaed Abdo Ahmed that lasted over 12 hours.

KNOE 8 News has also repeatedly asked for new information from Louisiana State Police and the FBI about the investigation.  The FBI told KNOE 8 News that a release was pending yesterday morning.  No release has been made available, and no calls have been returned.

ORIGINAL STORY:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - New details are emerging about the dead gunman involved at the Tensas State Bank shooting.  

Louisiana State Police confirm that Fuaed Abdo Ahmed was detained at an airport for a short time and was released.  This comes after his trip from Yemen he took this summer.  

Police are still working with the FBI to determine what led Ahmed to take over the bank branch and shoot 2 people, killing one of them.  

Officials say they had a difficult time, negotiating with Amhed, because of his mental state , and used all their training to communicate with him.

Ahmed had been a student at LSU in Baton Rouge where he was studying accounting.  He was not currently enrolled in the school.  

He claimed on his facebook page that he was a member of the student government association at the school.  LSU has said that they have no record of that.  

The University of Louisiana at Monroe released a statement Wednesday clarifying that Ahmed had never been associated with the local university, eventhough his Facebook page claimed he was a student there.  

KNOE 8 News has reached out to the FBI regarding Ahmed and his airport incident.  We've received no comment at this time from the agency.
