Two Inmates Still on the Loose After Alabama Jailbreak

Police in Alabama are searching for two escaped inmates who broke loose from a rural jail Saturday morning.

Three inmates reportedly overpowered a jailer after he entered their cell to check on one of the inmates, who said he was sick.

However, on Sunday, authorities reported they had arrested one of the inmates, Justin Gordon.

"The U.S. Marshals are in custody of him and they're going to transport him," County Sheriff Elect Scott Lolley told WTOK.

According to authorities, who said the FBI and U.S. Marshals are helping with the search, the jailer was the only guard on duty at the time of the break-out.

The Choctaw County Sheriff said they used dogs to follow the men's trail, but it went cold, indicating they got in a car at some point.

The two remaining inmates, Gemayel Culbert and Demarcus Woodard, are facing murder charges and the local sheriff says they should be considered extremely dangerous.

Authorities have advised anyone who sees the two men to avoid engaging them, and to call the police.
