RUSTON — A suspect in an armed robbery and a separate kidnapping was shot and killed Sunday by police at a Ruston motel, according to the Louisiana State Police.
Joseph Glenn, 22, of Grambling, confronted the Ruston police officers with a replica of a handgun before he was fatally shot at a Hampton Inn around 5:30 a.m., the State Police said.
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 that occurred after the robbery.
State Police Trooper Albert Paxton said nobody was injured in the armed robbery or kidnapping, but he didn’t immediately release any other information about either incident.
