CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) — Eight inmates, including a convicted murderer and another man charged with murder, escaped from a county jail by cutting a hole in the roof, authorities said Monday.

One of the men was captured by Clovis police, but the other seven remained at large and were considered dangerous, the sheriff said.

The escape was discovered Sunday night when police saw two people in orange jumpsuits running near the jail, Curry County Sheriff Matt Murray said.

The inmates apparently used handmade tools to cut the hole in the roof near a skylight, he said.
