Let us pray…Thank you Father God for resolving this standoff/hostage situation and keeping the boy safe.  Father God in heaven, we know you love this boy more than even his parents do and that you care about every human being because we are created in Your Image and Likeness and that is what makes human beings the target of Satan.  Satan and all evildoers hate the Image of God.  Thank You, from the bottom of our hearts and we give You praise, glory and thanksgiving.  Be with this child named Ethan and his parents and heal all the trauma they have faced for the past week.  We pray for the family of the heroic bus driver, Charles Albert Poland Jr, 66, to comfort his family in the period of mourning and for all the days of their lives.  In Jesus Christ’s name, we boldly pray.  Amen.

Charles Albert Poland Jr., age 66, the heroic bus driver who was shot dead. Jimmy Lee Dykes told Mr. Poland Jr, on Monday he would give him some home-grown broccoli the next day. But as well as handing him the gift he demanded two children. When the driver refused he shot him dead and kidnapping five-year-old ‘Ethan’.

Ala. hostage situation involving boy, 5, ends with death of gunman

The abducted boy, Ethan, has been taken to a hospital about eight miles from the place where he had been held hostage, Alabama Rep. Steve Clouse told CNN.

Authorities entered the bunker where the 5-year-old hostage was being held after negotiations deteriorated, FBI Special Agent in Charge Steve Richardson told reporters. After Jimmy Lee Dykes was seen holding a gun, FBI agents entered and rescued the boy, he said.

A neighbor of the man who held a 5-year-old boy hostage for nearly a week said Monday he heard it end.

“I heard a big boom and then I heard, I believe I heard, rifle shots,” Byron Martin told CNN. “Literally made me jump off the ground.”
