Alabama hostage standoff ends with child safe, gunman dead.
One kid safe, one scumbag dead. Sounds like a good day to me.
Looking forward to the details of the op.
(Reuters) - Authorities killed a gunman holding a 5-year-old boy hostage in an underground bunker in rural Alabama on Monday and plucked the child to safety without injury, a local law enforcement official said.
"It's all over," said the official, who asked not to be identified by name because he had not been authorized to discuss the operation that led to the successful rescue of the child.
"The boy is OK," he said.
