An armed man is holding two bank employees, a man and a woman, hostage inside a rural Louisiana bank.

The initial number of hostages was three, but the gunman released a female bank teller late Tuesday night after hours of negotiations with the police, according to reports of USA Today.

Two other bank officials, a man and a woman, are still being held by the gunman at the Tensas State Bank in St. Joseph, Louisiana, and are said to be unharmed and in good condition.

The hostage-taker seized three bank employees about 12:30 p.m. local time.

The suspect is a 20-year-old local man whose family owns a convenience store in Mississippi River town.

Negotiations with the gunman are still underway and there have been no reports of shots or violence.
