2 prison guards were killed in Putnam county this morning after being over powered by 2 prisoners that escaped while being transported on a prison bus on Georgia highway 16 named Donnie Russell Rowe and Ricky Dubose. The prisoners are armed with the deceased officers .40 cal handgun and are considered very dangerous. They took a green Honda Civic. Needless to say that if you see either one of these escaped prisoners please call 9-1-1!
Even though Ware County is 3 hours away from Putnam County we still need to be in high alert. This occurred at 5:45 an and they have no idea where that guys are! Currently it has been almost 6 hours since they escaped and they have a vehicle. The military has a saying! “STAY ALERT, STAY ALIVE!”
Stay tuned for updates.
Update: According to the City of Madison PD, the inmates broke into a residence there and got clothes, left their prison whites, and made their escape from there. The inmates and their vehicle have not been recovered. Via Oconee county facebook page update
