   BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The federal  say a rare amoeba that caused the August death of a child in south Louisiana has been found in five locations in a north Louisiana water system.

   The state Department of Health and Hospitals said Tuesday the CDC confirmed the presence of the Naegleria fowleri amoeba in five places in DeSoto Parish Waterworks District No. 1, which is one of 14 water systems in the parish.

   State health officials say there are no known current cases of illness related to the discovery in DeSoto or elsewhere in Louisiana.

   The water system said it will begin a free chlorine burn in the system Wednesday to last for 60 days.

   DHH began testing the DeSoto system as a precaution after St. Bernard Parish's water system tested positive. DeSoto was the site of one of two 2011 amoeba-related deaths in Louisiana.

   ST. JOSEPH, La. (AP) - Louisiana State Police superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson says one of the hostages shot during a hostage standoff at a rural bank has died.

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

   The gunman - identified as 20-year-old Fuaed (FOO-od) Abdo Ahmed - later told negotiators he would kill the remaining two hostages. Edmonson says state police entered the building just before midnight Tuesday and that's when the suspect shot the hostages before being shot and killed by police.

   Edmonson said he didn't have any other information about the hostage who died. The condition of the other hostage who was shot is unknown.
