Two Georgia convicts who escaped after allegedly killing two corrections officers were captured in Rutherford County, Tennessee Thursday evening.

A homeowner in Christiana, Tennessee saw the two men attempting to steal his car, got his gun, and held them at gunpoint until police arrived.

The men gave chase for about 10 miles and traveled at speeds around 100 mph on Interstate 24, Det. Sgt. Dan Goodwin said.

According to Goodwin, the pair opened fired on two police vehicles and fled on foot after crashing near mile marker 91.

The men were ultimately taken into custody at a home on Pruitt Road after a foot pursuit. The homeowner and a neighbor held the two suspects at gunpoint until deputies arrived to the home where authorities said the escapees were trying to steal another vehicle.
