An official report says, two US inmates who were on the run since Tuesday after shooting dead two prison officers have been captured.
Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose were seized in the state of Tennessee.
The men overpowered the guards as they were transported by bus to another facility in the state of Georgia.
This triggered a massive nationwide manhunt, with the authorities warning that the public was in "grave danger" because the inmates were armed.
However, the two men were in custody following a car chase, without providing any further details.
The authorities described the fugitive as "dangerous beyond description".
