Jimmy Lee Dykes, Alabama kidnapper, threatened to ‘kill us all,’ says student on bus

Jimmy Lee Dykes, the retired Alabama trucker who shot and killed school bus driver Charles Poland last week and has held a 5-year-old boy hostage (named Ethan) in his underground bunker for seven days, had threatened to kill all the children on the bus before taking the boy, one of the students on the bus said.

Charles Poland is being described as the hero who tried to stop Dykes, protect 21 studnets, but was shot by the kidnapper.

Charles Poland is being described as the hero who tried to stop Dykes, protect 21 studnets, but was shot by the kidnapper.

“He said he was going to kill us, going to kill us all,” Tarrica Singletary, 14, told ABC News.

“The bus driver kept saying, ‘Just please get off the bus,’ and [Dykes] said, ‘Ah, all right, I’ll get off the bus,” Tarrica said. “He just tried to back up and reverse and [Dykes] pulled out the gun and he just shot him, and he just took Ethan.”

Poland allegedly put himself in harm’s way to protect the students on the bus before Dykes shot and killed the man.
