Authorities say escaped Georgia inmates caught in Tennessee

A cash reward was being offered for information leading to the men's arrest. They said from there, they an stole another auto and headed to Bedford County, where investigators said they broke into an elderly couple's home. Eastbound traffic was diverted off I-24 at the Buchanan exit (mile marker 89), because TBI agents were collecting evidence at the interstate crash and run scene, 2-miles east of that point. They left that truck in Tennessee and stole a white sedan, which they abandoned near the hostages' home, Swing said.

Reports say shots were fired but no one was injured. "Before I could get anywhere upon them, there were 25 officers out here", said Littrell.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol said after a brief pursuit and foot chase, Dubose and Rowe ran through the woods to a home in the rural community of Christina.

Rowe and Dubose crashed the auto and bailed out, running into the woods, Miller said. They made their way to another home, but police say this time the homeowner held them at gunpoint with help from a neighbor after they tried to steal the homeowner's auto.

The two men are suspected of killing prison transfer Sgts.

"I prayed like I have never prayed before", he said at a news conference today of the moment he saw the prisoners approaching. He didn't draw his weapon, he said. My honest thanks to our local, state and federal law enforcement officers who assisted in the manhunt.

Investigators said the men surrendered peacefully when they were taken into custody.

"During the pursuit the suspects, and about that time we found out who we were dealing with, started firing on our vehicles", said Fitzhugh.

They were able to get through a locked gate and overpower two officers, one of whom was driving the transport bus.

"I think it's a testament to the training, I think it's a testament to our individuals and I think it's a testament to our men and women at the sheriff's office, that they handled themselves very well in a very tight, tough situation". Dubose and Rowe remained inside the home of the couple - who police say are "extremely traumatised" - for three hours as they took clothing and jewellery, and ate beef stew.

At the time of the shooting, 31 other inmates were on board the bus, which was en route to a diagnostic facility when the escape took place.

Dubose, who has elaborate tattoos on his face and neck, began a 20-year sentence in 2015.

The guards killed in the escape were Baldwin State Prison officers Sergeants Christopher Monica and Curtis Billue.

"The pain endured by the families and loved ones of Sergeant Christopher Monica and Sergeant Curtis Billue endures, however", Deal said in a statement.

He said the focus now was tracking them down and offering compassion to the families of the corrections officers, killed in the line of duty.
