1 of Three Escaped Mississippi Prisoners Recaptured (VIDEO)

One of the four men who escaped from a Mississippi jail over the weekend was recaptured after fleeing to Texas, authorities said Thursday.

Raynes and Arrington, along with Casey Grayson and Corey Harrison, escaped from the Raymond Detention Center near Jackson through a hole in a cell and the facility’s roof, police said earlier this week.

Hinds County Sheriff Tyree Jones said the four may have camped out together on the roof before splitting up. It was unclear on Thursday whether Grayson and Harrison had traveled to Texas with Raynes.

Two inmates – Casey Grayson, 24, Corey Harrison, 22 – are still on the run while Dylan Arrington, 22, died in a house fire following a police standoff on Wednesday.

The four inmates escaped from the troubled Raymond Detention Center on Sunday sparking a huge manhunt.

Arrington then allegedly shot and killed 61-year-old pastor Anthony Watts on Monday night after the victim pulled over to help him. Arrington then fled in Watts’ Dodge Ram before being tracked down to a home in Leake County on Wednesday morning where he opened fire on law enforcement, shooting an officer in the leg.

The house then went up in flames and Arrington died in the fire, the Hinds County sheriff said.

The wounded officer – Leake County Investigator Jerry Horn – was released from hospital on Thursday. He was welcomed home with a police motorcade.

Jerry Wayne Raynes, 51, was taken into custody without incident in Spring Valley after being sighted on surveillance footage at a nearby Shell gas station and McDonald’s outpost, according to the Hinds County Sheriff’s Office.
