South Carolina prison escapee shot dead by homeowner, other jail-breaker captured, cops say

One escaped inmate was shot dead by a female homeowner and another was captured soon after the pair's ill-fated, early-morning prison break from a facility in South Carolina on Tuesday, officials said.

The incident began around 2:35 a.m. when two inmates assaulted and took hostage two detention center guards, overtaking a teaching area as part of a "premeditated plan" to escape the facility, Pickens County Sheriff Rick Clark said at a news conference.

The first 911 calls came in around 2:53 a.m. notifying deputies of the incident, and the first officers arrived around four minutes later, according to Clark.

As deputies from the sheriff's office arrived at the scene, one of the inmates, Timothy Cleveland Dill, was taken into custody on a nearby road without incident. Dill had been jailed on charges of sexual conduct with a minor, according to jail records.

Clark said that, as Dill was being captured, a female homeowner who lives nearby called 911 to report a man had kicked in her back door and she had shot him.
