    ABC News - Two 'Dangerous' Inmates Escaped From Texas Jail (ABC News)

Texas authorities are using helicopters and dogs to search for two "dangerous" Texas inmates who escaped from jail this morning by squeezing through a gate, leaving behind their black and white prison suits on the railroad tracks behind the jail.

Authorities believe Brian Tucker, 44, and John King, 39, escaped from Hopkins County Jail in Sulphur Springs, Texas, at around 8:30 a.m. today.

"Both are considered dangerous," Deputy Alvin Jordan of the Hopkins County Sheriff's Office told ABCNews.com.

Area schools are on lockdown and businesses are on high alert, according to police.

Tucker was awaiting trial in jail for capital murder charges and King had been indicted for evading arrest.

"They were put out on rec yard to have outside rec and undoubtedly squeezed through the gate and took off," Jordan said. "We did find their black and whites about 100 yards behind the facility."

Tucker and King were both segregated from other inmates because of the types of crimes they have committed, according to Jordan.

It is unknown what the men are wearing, whether they may have used some kind of transportation after leaving the jail yard and whether they are still together, Jordan said.

Asked if there is any reason to believe they could be armed, Jordan said, "At this point, unless they picked up anything from here to where they're at, the weapons part is unknown."

Their only known connection at this time is that they were inmates at the same time in the same jail with no known previous ties.

Authorities are warning people to be careful and call 911 if they see the men.

"If they're spotted, make sure they lock their doors, call 911 and tell us what area they're in," Jordan said. "Don't try to let them approach you."

Tucker is 5-foot-7-inches and about 170 pounds. He has brown eyes, brown hair and multiple tattoos. King is 5-foot-8-inches and 165 pounds. He has black hair, hazel eyes and multiple tattoos.

ah, ok, thanks. I just heard about that in passing. 

Quoting pamelax3:

 Actually it was the other way around. THey were in the Colorado Prison, killed to Co. Prison official and then he was shot and killed here in Texas


Quoting autodidact:

Again? Didn't a bunch just escape from a Texas prison a week or two ago and go to Colorado and kill a sheriff or a deputy?

 I am also curious if they are affiliated with the white supremacist groups that are reeking havoc in TX right now?

Ignorance

Quoting Donna6503:

I blame Obama and his very liberal food stamp program; everybody knows that if Obama didn't allow food stamps those convicts would've preferred their life in prison.

Yep, gotta blame Obama it is his fault totally.

 And more importantly, where were the guards? And who is dumb enough to build a jail/prison next to railroad tracks? Just saying!

Quoting pamelax3:

 very good question, I would like to also know

 

Quoting tscritch:

 Neither of these men appear super skinny, so I am curious how this gate was left with such a big gap for them to squeeze through?

 Oh I'm sure we won't.

If they were such dangerous inmates and segregated from the other inmates due to their crimes...why were they left unattended? IT MAKES NO SENSE!!!!!!
