ST. JOSEPH, La. (AP) - A memorial prayer service is planned for Tuesday outside Tensas State Bank in memory of the two employees who died after being shot during a standoff at the bank last week.

The service marks one week since 20-year-old Fuaed Abdo Ahmed walked into the bank and took three people hostage. During negotiations, Ahmed released 1 of the hostages but he shot LaDean McDaniel and Jay Warbington when police stormed the bank. He was shot and killed by police.

The service is scheduled for 6 p.m. Louisiana State Police Col. Michael Edmonson is among the scheduled speakers.
