Wesley Williams-Correa-Carmenaty, 23, was being returned from a court hearing at about 11 a.m. on Monday when the situation went sideways. He managed to "steal" (gain control of) a weapon from a Pottawattamie County, Iowa, Sheriff's Deputy and shot two deputies, killing one. He then stole a transport van, crashed the gates at the jail and fled across the river to Nebraska.

A female prisoner was also in the transport van but was left behind and is not thought to have been involved in the escape. In addition a private citizen was shot by Carmenaty during an apparent carjacking.

The bad guy was recaptured in Nebraska following a high-speed chase and crash. He had just been sentenced to 45 years for robbery and had earlier pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and attempted murder in connection with a robbery-homicide.

I strongly suspect the Pottawattamie County S.O. may be about to review it's sallyport security and other transport related procedures. .
