An incredible scene unfolded in Oklahoma, where an inmate took a corrections officer hostage.

The Officer was overpowered and captured by the inmate while he was handing out medication to the inmates.

The inmate bound the officers hands and forced him to crawl around on the floor.

He also took the officers keys and released a number of other prisoners — and the whole “hostage nightmare” was caught on video.

Below is a Twitter thread with 3 powerful videos.


In the end, the inmate was shot and killed when he held an object to the officer’s neck.

The officer was taken to the hospital. He did not suffer any major injuries.

Here’s more from USA Today:

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City police shot and killed an inmate at the Oklahoma County jail after a hostage situation Saturday night involving a guard.

The jail was on lockdown Saturday night with extra staff inside, while outside, a small group of protesters chanted and pounded on the jail’s parking lot gate.

The man who was killed was not immediately identified by officials, pending family notification. Officials said he was the suspected hostage taker.

The jail employee was rescued and taken to a hospital for treatment. Jail Administrator Greg Williams said that the guard left the jail on his own, but did not provide details of his injuries.

The incident happened on the jail’s 10th floor, where the inmates that are the hardest to manage are housed, Williams said.

The guard was taken hostage during medicine distribution, Williams said at a news conference Saturday night. It’s likely that the detention officer would have been accompanied by a medical professional, but he said no one else was injured.

Video that appeared to be from inside the jail was shared online, showing an inmate speaking and standing next to another person who appeared to be restrained. In the video, the inmate complains about jail conditions, saying, “We can’t take showers.”
