D.C. inmate escapes while being taken to hospital
An inmate at the Correctional Treatment Facility in D.C. escaped Thursday morning while being transported to United Medical Center, the former Greater Southeast Hospital, for medical treatment.
Authorities said they were taking Terrence Moore to the hospital at 8:50 a.m. When they arrived and opened the vehicle in which Moore was riding, he fled and jumped into a burgundy colored Cadillac.
Officers were able to get the license plate number of the car: D.C. tag CX3623.
Moore, 28, is black, 5 ft. 9 in., and weighs approximately 200 lbs. He has braids in his hair and was last wearing a two-piece navy blue facility-issued uniform. He had been at the Correctional Treatment Facility as a pre-trial inmate facing charges of assault with intent to kill.
The Correctional Treatment Facility has been placed on lockdown. Police say anyone who believes they have seen Moore or the car he fled in should take precaution and call 911 or [202-727-9099.
