Both men worked as correctional officers at Baldwin State Prison, she said, and the department said they had an "unwavering commitment to their job" and their families. "We see our officers as our family", Dozier said. "Words do not adequately express our sorrow in losing Sergeant Christopher Monica and Sergeant Curtis Billue in the line of duty".

Sills, the sheriff, said, one corrections officer was driving and that the escapees somehow went through a gate while the bus was moving on the highway. It was unclear what they were in custody for.

"We're trying to get this bus unloaded", Massee said. He appears to have a crown tattooed above his right eyebrow, writing above his left eyebrow and large letters covering the entire front of his neck.

WSB-TV reported that the escapees are in a dark green Honda. They were armed with the officers' weapons and are considered extremely unsafe.

The two prisoners were said to have overpowered the two corrections officers on the transport bus. Dubose was imprisoned after he was found guilty of credit card fraud, armed robbery, theft and aggravated assault.

They were working as a part of a mobile work detail under state corrections officers' supervision in Putnam County early on Tuesday morning.

Ricky Dubose now has tattoos on his face, according to updated photos.

Putnam County's seat of government, Eatonton, is about 65 miles southeast of Atlanta.

The search continued Tuesday afternoon for two escaped inmates accused of shooting and killing two corrections officers in Putnam County.

Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, who was testifying Tuesday morning on Capitol Hill, decried the attacks during his appearance before a Senate subcommittee. The inmates have been identified as 43-year-old Donnie Russell Rowe and 24-year-old Ricky Dubose. He pledged "all federal resources to help catch those fugitives and hold the perpetrators accountable". "We have to find that vehicle", Sheriff Sills said.

His auto is described as a grass green 2004 Honda Civic 4 door with GA license plate RBJ660 and are believed to be traveling in it.

Witnesses say they saw the pair escape in another auto.

The names of the slain prison guards weren't immediately released. Both inmates were housed at Baldwin State Prison, 11Alive said.
