Patricia White was freed from being held by a gunman inside Tensas State Bank in St. Joseph on August 13, but two bank employees remain hostages.

White was released around 10 p.m. CDT.

White is an employee of the bank, reported KTVE

The stand-off started around 12:30 p.m. when a man with at least a handgun took White, another woman, and a man captive. A negotiator has been talking to the man throughout the rest of the day.

The gunman has made some demands but officials wouldn’t say what the demands are.
