Scene of the Standoff

The FBI, the Dale County Sheriff’s Office, and the Alabama Department of Public Safety have released four high-resolution photographs of the hostage-standoff scene in Midland, Alabama, where Jimmy Dykes held a 5-year-old boy captive for nearly a week. The above photo shows the pipe that FBI agents and Dale County negotiators used to communicate with Dykes. On February 4, law enforcement ultimately entered the bunker and the child was rescued.
