Five men had escaped a Georgia facility Friday, but one of them has been captured.

An alert about the inmates with violent criminal histories escaping from the Pulaski County Law Enforcement Center Friday was issued. Images of Tyree Mantan Jackson, Dennis Penix Jr., Lewis Wendall Evans, Tyree Williams and Brandon Pooler were shared by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) on Twitter.

According to investigators, the five men with two being murder suspects, were supposed to be in lockdown but escaped around 11.15 pm Friday. One of two guards on duty was talking to an inmate in a cell, but then another inmate attacked the jailer. The inmates told the jailer they were going to take her life, after which they grabbed her car keys and attacked the other jailer, said the sheriff. However, none of the jailers were hurt in the attack, reported Fox5 Atlanta.

To escape from prison, they picked a 2015 KIA Sedona with CMP8628 as the Georgia license plate, according to Fox News.

Evans, 22, has been described by the GBI as a man, who weighs 122 pounds, is 5-feet-2-inches tall, and has black hair with brown eyes. He was accused of obstructing an officer. Jackson, 27, also has brown eyes and black hair, weighs 176 pounds and is 5-feet-6-inches tall. He was charged in car break-ins.

Penix, Jr., 28, weighs 165 pounds, is 5-feet-9-inches tall, and has brown eyes and black hair. He was accused of murdering two men four years ago in a drug deal gone bad. Pooler, 24, weighs 215 pounds, is 6-feet-1-inch tall, and has with brown eyes and black hair and was accused of child cruelty.

Williams is the oldest out of the lot. He is 33 years old, weighs 160 pounds, is 5-feet-6-inches tall, and has brown eyes and black hair. He was charged with home invasion and felony murder and for allegedly shooting a man in July last year.

Authorities feel that the suspects might have two tasers, and they do not know where the inmates are headed.

The GBI said that Jackson was taken back into custody Sunday. A $5,000 reward is being offered by the US Marshals Service for information that will help in arresting any of these men. Authorities said that people should not take action on their own as the inmates are extremely dangerous. Instead people have been asked to call 911 or the Pulaski County sheriff’s office.
