Best possible outcome:
In a news conference this afternoon, the FBI said they had no choice but to go into the bunker and rescue the child. They said negotiations had deteriorated over the past few days. They then observed the suspect, 65-year old Jim Dykes with a gun.
FBI agents stormed the bunker and took the child. They also killed the suspect.
Before the news conference Monday, an ambulance that had been parked near the scene could be seen driving away. However, it was not clear if anyone was inside, and the vehicle did not have its sirens or emergency lights on.
Many people in the area also say they heard a loud boom before later hearing that the boy was safe and the suspect is dead.
Dykes stormed a school bus last week, killed the bus driver, and took the 5-year old boy hostage.
