Armed Homeowner Stops Cop Killing Prison Escapees in Tennessee

The southeast had been on high alert this week after a violent and daring prison escape occurred, with two correctional officers being killed in the process.

Two men, jailed for life plus 20 years between them, had escaped from a Georgia prison bus early on Tuesday morning.  The men, Ricky Dubose and Donnie Rowe killed two correctional guards, stole their firearms and a vehicle, and fled, inciting a massive manhunt in the deep south.  Sightings of the two littered Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and other states in the ensuing 48 hours, with police desperately seeking to bring the two violent killers to justice.

After a tip led authorities to the men’s general vicinity, the chase was on.  Although police were on the tail of the escaped convicts for 10 miles, it was ultimately a Second Amendment-practicing citizen that captured the outlaws.

“A Tennessee homeowner held two escaped inmates wanted in the killing of two prison guards at gunpoint Thursday until authorities arrived and made the arrests.

Trending: Fuel for Thought

“Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Bill Miller said late Thursday that the homeowner caught Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose trying to steal his vehicle.

“Miller says the escaped Georgia inmates had crashed a car while being chased by law enforcement and fled on foot into woods along Interstate 24 near the rural community of Christiana.

This is not your average “good guy with a gun” story, either.

Rowe and Dubose were in jail for serious offenses, and, with the fresh murders of the correctional officers on their record, there was a massive reward of $130,000 being offered for their capture.  This brave homeowner, who has yet to be named, will hopefully be in line to collect this hefty sum after courageously pinning the two dangerous men down with his firearm while police caught up to the scene.
