Manhunt for escaped inmates enters third day — Georgia Prison Escape

The Muscogee County Sheriff's Office and other law enforcement agencies have been alerted about two Georgia inmates who escaped Tuesday in Putnam County after overpowering and killing two guards.

Rowe was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for multiple armed robberies; Dubose was serving 20 years for armed robbery and aggravated assault. The men hide the Honda in the woods near the burglarized house, then made their way to an industrial site where they stole the pickup, authorities said.

The FBI said these men are armed and unsafe and if you think you see them, call 911 immediately.

Ricky Dubose, 24, and Donnie Russell Rowe, 43, are accused of killing two guards and stealing a pickup truck.

Police officials stopped a auto they believed to be Rowe and DuBose on Interstate 24 near the Epps Mill Road exit.

Sills described the fugitives as violent repeat offenders who are extremely risky, having taken the guards' 9 mm pistols.

Two Georgia inmates described as "dangerous beyond description" remained on the run early Thursday after their guards on a prison bus were disarmed and killed. That theft took place around 10 p.m. on Tuesday night. "How they got through the locks and things up to that area I do not know".

Authorities had been engaged in a massive manhunt for the fugitives, who escaped Tuesday during a prison transport. Both are believed to be armed and unsafe.

"It has become a nationwide search", said David LeValley, who runs the Federal Bureau of Investigation office in Atlanta.

A representative from the Oconee County Sheriff's Office states the escapees broke into a home south of Athens and took clothing, leaving their prison uniforms behind.

One Capitol Hill police officer also suffered a gunshot wound and another officer suffered a non-gunshot injury, an official said. Scalise is in critical condition, according to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, and the other patient was hospitalized.

It wasn't immediately clear exactly where in Tennessee Dubose and Rowe were found, or whether they were traveling together.

Monica and Billue were both transfer sergeants at Baldwin State Prison.

Putnam County, Georgia, Sheriff Howard Sills said earlier today the public was in "grave danger" and that authorities did not know where the unsafe inmates were.

The officers were killed onboard the bus that was transporting 33 inmates along Ga.

The deadly incident happened on Hwy. 16 between Sparta and Eatonton just before 7 a.m. Tuesday. At the same time, authorities were searching for a green Honda Civic, which was stolen after the alleged shooting. It is our honest hope that the reward helps promote the quick capture of the two inmates before they are able to harm anyone else. It was carjacked shortly after the shooting.

"If somebody is helping them and we identify who they are, they will be prosecuted as parties to this crime", Sills said.

Dubose has brown hair and blue eyes.

MACON (The Telegraph) - According to The Telegraph in Macon, the Putnam County Sheriff's Office is reporting two corrections officers are dead after a prison bus was hijacked.

Authorities said both men are considered extremely risky.
