As a hostage standoff reaches a fourth day in Alabama, authorities are hoping the kidnapper grows tired and surrenders as a FBI hostage negotiator talks with the suspect through plastic ventilation pipes, CNN reports

On Tuesday afternoon the suspect boarded a bus stop, killed the bus driver and grabbed two children. One of them escaped.

The gunman is holed up in an underground bunker.

An FBI hostage negotiator has been communicating with the suspect through an underground bunker four feet beneath the ground, CNN report.

“They’re taking time and trying to wear him out,” said Police Chief James Arrington of Pinckard, who is familiar with details of the case.

The motive of the kidnapping is unclear.
