Hostage situation in Dale County

Hostage situation in Dale County

By now, the whole nation is talking about the hostage situation that is taking place in Alabama.

At 3:30 yesterday afternoon, man boarded a school bus and demanded two children as hostages. The driver refused and was shot, and later died of his injuries. The shooter took one child, who is still being held hostage.

The latest reports have said that the child has not been injured, and is being kept in an underground bunker or storm shelter.

Police, SWAT teams and negotiators are still at the scene trying to talk the man down. We’re also having severe weather throughout the state today, so that is sure to complicate matters.

Say a prayer for the child, the parents, the officers working the situation, and the entire community.
