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

The gunman — identified as 20-year-old Fuaed Abdo Ahmed — later told negotiators he would kill the remaining two hostages.

Authorities say state police entered the building just before midnight Tuesday and that’s when the gunman shot the hostages before being shot and killed by police.
