Escaped Georgia Inmates Captured By Armed Tennessee Homeowner

posted on June 17, 2017

Inmates Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose killed Sgt. Christopher Monica and Sgt. Curtiss Billue southeast of Atlanta. They escaped a prison bus, stole cars, terrorized an elderly couple—all while being pursued by Georgia police, the U.S. Marshals Service, the FBI and the ATF. They were chased by authorities in Tennessee, crashed, and fled on foot.

Then they were apprehended by a Tennessee homeowner with his gun.

On Thursday, the fugitives who made national news had smashed their car during police pursuit and scurried into nearby woods. They emerged at a home in the rural community of Christiana, where the homeowner heard the convicts attempting to steal his car.

Highway Patrol Lt. Bill Miller told Fox News that the homeowner then called his neighbor, and both men held the dangerous duo at gunpoint while waiting for deputies. “I can't say enough about the bravery of the homeowner, and what they took on, the wherewithal to call us and give us the information so we could get over there and apprehend these two subjects,” Rutherford County Sheriff Mike Fitzhugh told CNN.
