    Default Prison Guard Killed During Inmate Escape

    Prison Guard Killed During Inmate Escape

    HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- Two prison inmates working in a field stole a vehicle and ran over a guard Monday, killing her and sparking a frantic manhunt, KPRC Local 2 reported.

    Department of Public Safety officials said several inmates escaped from the Wynne Unit at about 10:30 a.m.

    Prisoner Jerry Martin and another inmate, John Ray Falk, were working in a field at the prison along Interstate 45 when they apparently overpowered an officer supervising them, took her weapons and stole a Huntsville city vehicle that was nearby.

    Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokeswoman Michelle Lyons said the guard was run over during the escape. She died a short time later. Her name was not released.

    Falk has been caught but Martin remained on the loose.

    Texas Department of Criminal Justice officials said the stolen vehicle was abandoned and recovered.

    Martin, 37, has been serving a sentence of 50 years since 1997 for two counts of attempted capital murder in Collin County. He was last seen wearing prison-issue white shirt and pants.

    Officials said 2,600 men are housed at the Wynne Unit. The unit has a maximum capacity of 2,300.

    Anyone who sees Martin was advised not to approach him and to immediately called police.
