ORANGEBURG COUNTY, South Carolina -- Authorities are searching for three inmates who escaped from a South Carolina jail. Two of the inmates are charged with murder.
The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post that the three escaped Saturday night and that all are considered dangerous.
Sheriff Leroy Ravenell identified the three as 27-year-old Tyshon Demontrea Johnson; 20-year-old Curtis Ray Green; and 27-year-old Christopher Shannon Boltin.
Authorities say Johnson and Green are charged with murder while Boltin faces a carjacking and grand larceny charge.
The sheriff's office didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press seeking details about the escape.
An inmate serving a sentence for violation probation escaped last year from the jail, which was built in 1967.
County officials have approved construction of a new $26 million jail.
