Officials say they stormed a bunker in Alabama to rescue a 5-year-old child being held hostage there, after his abductor was seen with a gun.
Steve Richardson with the FBI's office in Mobile said that negotiations deteriorated and that 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes had been seen with a gun.
At that, officers believed the child was in imminent danger. Officers entered the bunker just after 3 p.m.
Earlier Monday, officials had said they had been sending food and medicine to Dykes and the boy in the bunker.
The boy has Asperger's syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
