A capital murder suspect who escaped from a Mississippi jail last week has been shot dead by one of the people he had taken hostage, reports claim.
Rafael McCloud, 33, escaped from the Warren County jail in Vicksburg last Wednesday after attacking a jail guard with a shank and donning his uniform.
A week later, at 4.30am on Thursday, he broke into a family’s home and took a man, woman and child hostage.
But at around 7am, the man managed to find a gun and shoot McCloud dead in their bathtub, police told the Vicksburg Post.
The husband, who has not been identified, was taken to Merit Health River Region Medical Center with non-life-threatening stab wounds as police removed the body from the home in the Fort Hill neighborhood.
His wife was hit in the head but was not injured and did not need treatment,’ police said.
‘This is certainly not how we wanted this to end,’ Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said, according to the Post.
‘Our goal was to take him back into custody and have him stand before a jury in Warren County. But he brought this upon himself.
