Inmates suspected of killing two Georgia correctional officers were captured on Thursday after two armed homeowners cornered them and held them for police.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the two correctional officers were shot Tuesday morning. The suspects, 24-year-old Ricky Dubose and 43-year-old Donnie Russell Rowe, were prison inmates who overpowered the officers, then allegedly shot them to death.
A national manhunt followed.
CNN reports that Dubose and Rowe allegedly stole numerous cars after escaping. They also allegedly “robbed two homes, tied up and terrorized an elderly couple.”
