 An armed robbery suspect was killed and a sheriff's deputy was shot and wounded in a shootout Thursday in a Louisiana city near the Mississippi River, authorities said.

Concordia Parish Officer Walter Mackel was shot when he knocked at an apartment door while investigating a holdup earlier in the day at the complex in Vidalia, KNOE-TV reported. The station said that a robot was used to find the suspect.
