RUSTON, La. (AP) — The Louisiana State Police says a suspect in an armed robbery and a separate kidnapping was shot and killed by police at a Ruston motel.

The State Police said 22-year-old Joseph Glenn, of Grambling, confronted the Ruston police officers with a replica of a handgun before he was fatally shot at a Hampton Inn on Sunday morning.

Glenn was the suspect in an armed robbery at a Ruston gas station that was reported several hours before the motel shooting. He also was suspected of involvement in a kidnapping at a Walmart in Ruston later in the morning.

A Ruston Police Department spokesman referred questions about the investigation to the State Police.
