Megyn Kelly provided us an update on the hostage situation in Midland City, Alabama, where the suspect has had a 6-year-old boy holed up in a bunker for almost 24 hours. The suspect stormed a school bus yesterday afternoon demanding a child. When the driver refused, the suspect shot and killed him.

Authorities surrounded the property of Jimmy Lee Dykes, who Megyn Kelly describes as a possible suspect. Police have not confirmed that he’s a suspect. Dykes was due in court today on menacing charges for allegedly firing gunshots during a dispute with neighbors.
