D.C. jail escapee is captured
Update: 8:17 p.m.:
D.C. police have captured a jail escapee who fled while being transported to a hospital earlier today.
Officers arrested Terrence Moore near 10th Place and Wheeler Road Southeast about 7 p.m., D.C. police said. He was arrested without incident.
Moore, an inmate at the Correctional Treatment Facility, escaped about 8:50 a.m. while being transported to United Medical Center, the former Greater Southeast Hospital. When police opened a door of the vehicle after arriving at the hospital, Moore fled.
He had been at the D.C. jail's Correctional Treatment Facility as as a pre-trial inmate facing charges of assault with intent to kill.
Authorities continue to search for an inmate at the Correctional Treatment Facility in D.C. who escaped Thursday morning while being transported to United Medical Center.
Terrence Moore was being taken to the hospital at 8:50 a.m. when he fled. Moore had been in full restraints while en route to the hospital, but he was not in restraints when he escaped. Officials are looking into how he was able to remove his restraints.
Officials had earlier reported that Moore fled in a burgundy colored Cadillac. Officials now say that information was incorrect. An officer saw a car leaving the area around the time Moore fled and wrote down the license plate. It was later determined that Moore did not leave in the car and the occupants of the car were not involved in his escape.
