CLAREMORE, Oklahoma –
Dozens of U.S. Marshals and local law enforcement are in Rogers County early Sunday on a manhunt involving two federal escapees from the Moore Detention Center in Okmulgee.
They say Coker Barker and Dustin Marris were last seen near 4210 and 430 Roads.
The sheriff’s office said Marris was recently convicted of shooting with intent to kill.
The victim in that case was an Okmulgee County deputy who tried to pull Marris over for a traffic stop, which led to a chase and Marris fired several shots at the deputy before crashing.
Barker is awaiting trial in federal court for murder in Indian country.
Authorities have a perimeter set up in that area and want everyone to know the men are considered armed and dangerous.
If anyone sees the men, call 911 immediately.
