We're soooo relieved!

After six days of being held captive by a gun-toting murderer, 5-year-old Ethan is finally free.

When law enforcement stormed Jimmy Lee Dykes' underground bunker this afternoon, they say the violent madman held a gun to his young captor.

It's still unclear exactly what happened next, but now the 65-year-old assailant is dead and Ethan is safe.

FBI Special Agent Stephen Richardson revealed:

"Negotiations deteriorated and Mr. Dykes was observed holding a gun. At this point, FBI agents, fearing the child was in imminent danger, entered the bunker and rescued the child."

While we're curious to learn HOW the boy was rescued, we're beyond elated to know this standoff is over!

Last Tuesday, Ethan — a kindergartener with Aspergers and ADHD — was taken off his Alabama school bus after his soon-to-be kidnapper killed the driver.

    i guess now they wil never know why he did it but i guess knowing why is less important than retrieving the child alive … thank the lord for that …

    We don't need to know why the madman did what he did!!! He's a madman and is crazy. He had no rational explanation for kidnapping a child. I hope the child gets the best therapy there is in order to cope with his horrendous experience.

    Probably a good thing he was killed, he would not have fared well in prison, and now the taxpayers do not have to pay for his incarceration.
