The 'survivalist killer' who allegedly gunned down a bus driver before taking a boy hostage in an underground bunker is now dead as the dramatic ordeal has ended after seven days.
The five-year-old boy hostage, known only as Ethan, was taken away from the scene and is believed to be in fine condition.
Multiple news outlets have reported that the gunman, 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes, is deceased, but the cause of his death was not immediately known.

Thank You Jesus. Prayers answered. Thank you
Any reporting on the reason he took the kid? Apparently he wanted this specific boy, was there some family connection?
” Too bad we cant hang the bastard.”
The upside is, his demise saved the taxpayers a lot of money.
We know we aren’t supposed to say anything but good about the dead. He’s dead. Good.
Sounded to me like he wanted 2 kids and only managed 1. Sounded random to me.
***The ‘survivalist killer’ ****
I suppose anyone who builds a tornado shelter will be considered by the MSM as “survivalist killer” now.
An early news story was that he boarded the school bus, demanded the driver hand over two (6-8year old?) boys. When the driver refused he shot the driver and grabbed this boy. Sounded pretty random.
just wait one stink’n minute. You mean to say the man was killed with gun violence ?
Did the LEOs bring this to a successful conclusion, or did Obama grab his trusty skeet shooter and handle it all by himself?
Was to be arrested and arraigned in court for shooting at cars
Supposedly had made a speed bump on dirt road in front of property
When a car hit it and and destroyed it started shooting at car
Good riddance to this whack job........
As an aside. Appears to make hiding in bunkers as a prep plan a waste of time and money. Didn't work in the Pacific in WW II, didn't work recently in Oregon or Washington (can't remember which) didn't work here, and safe rooms were proven to be a bust in Waco TX. What is an honest prepper to do?
“The reporter states he was a survivalist killer”
I’m suprised they didn’t call the guy a prepper killer.
Anyway thank God they got that kid out alive.

Oh they have been playing up the whole survivalist anti-government angle big time. They are repeating the mantra anti-government=murderous gun-nut/nut-job=prepper/survivalist.
“Too bad we cant hang the bastard.”
Hold on, maybe we can get up a petition!
Indeed. It looks like one needs to ask an additional question: “who are you trying to be safe from, regular criminals, or the federal government?”
I recall a story from a couple of years ago that some “spam king” was hiding in a safe room when they came to get him; they took turns with a chainsaw to the door.
Hope the kid doesn't develop PTSD. If he does, he may never be allowed the means to protect himself for the rest of his life.
Whatever such a thing is, is this a reporters opinion?
But of course. It's not as if reporters actually "report" any more. That's no longer their job. Their purpose is to help advance the regime's ideology. As such, they interweave every dispatch with opinion - that is to say, liberal ideology. They all use the common template.
