Back in custody: Two escaped inmates described as "dangerous beyond description" have been captured in Tennessee.

TBI Director Mark Gwyn said he's "totally grateful to everyone involved". They said from there, they an stole another vehicle and headed to Bedford County, where investigators said they broke into an elderly couple's home.

The escapees eventually crashed the stolen vehicle and fled on foot.

Two of the sheriff's office vehicles, with deputies inside, were fired upon during the pursuit, said Dan Goodwin of the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office. The deputy began following the auto, called for backup and then tried to conduct a traffic stop, but the vehicle fled to the interstate and a chase ensued. But this time, a homeowner saw the two trying to steal his vehicle. The homeowner and his neighbor held them at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

Georgia Department of Corrections Commissioner Gregory Dozier said, "Our hearts are heavy as we mourn the loss of two of our officers, who are our family".

The Associated Press reports the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation will take part in processing the scene.

The corrections department identified the victims as Christopher Monica, 42, who began working there in 2009, and Curtis Billue, 58, who would have marked his 10th anniversary with the department next month.

Despite the disgusting news of the week, including the killing of two prison guards in Georgia and the attempted assassination of Republican congressmen in Arlington, VA on Wednesday it was a good week for good guys with guns. After escaping, the men immediately carjacked a 2004 Honda Civic, burglarized a home and later stole a white Ford truck.

The reward for information leading to their arrest grew Wednesday to $115,000, contributed by multiple agencies, Sills said. The fugitives lost their weapons in the crash and surrendered, authorities said.

The man and woman were threatened during the ordeal, Swing said. The pain endured by the families and loved ones of Sergeant Christopher Monica and Sergeant Curtis Billue endures, however. Monica was an 8-year veteran of the Department of Corrections.

Sheriff Howard Sills, Putnam County, GA; says, "shortly afterwards there was a chase that ensued with that auto that they had stolen".

Authorities say they began to pursue the suspects unknowingly while responding to an armed robbery call. During the June 13 transport, two correctional officers were fatally attacked.
