WALTERS, Okla. (AP) – Authorities are searching for an inmate who escaped the Cotton County jail.

Authorities say Robert Lee Turk was discovered missing early Monday from the jail in Walters. Authorities tell Lawton television station KSWO that Turk somehow managed to open the lock on his cell and break down a door to escape the jail.

Turk was being held on a felony count of shooting with intent to kill.

Authorities say Turk has escaped the county jail before.

The sheriff’s office says authorities have set up a perimeter around the town and are checking every vehicle that passes.
