Two escaped inmates sought in the killings of two guards on a Georgia prison bus were captured after a chase and being held at gunpoint by a rural Tennessee homeowner whose vehicle they were trying to steal, authorities said.

Donnie Rowe, 43, and Ricky Dubose, 24, were apprehended Thursday in the rural community of Christiana, Tennessee, ending a multi-state manhunt that began Tuesday morning.

‘True bravery is what’s caused us to stand before you tonight to talk about a successful capture instead of a tragic incident,’ Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn said at a news conference. ‘So I’m totally grateful to everyone involved.’
