Etowah Court Escapee Caught

Last Thursday David Dwayne Jones escaped from the Etowah Municipal Court by covering his handcuffs with a sweater and exiting out City Hall. That night a black Chevy Malibu was stone from a convenience store on Forrest Avenue. Friday afternoon police spotted that car with Jones behind the wheel and tried to stop it, but Jones rammed through the US Marshalls’ blockade and a Gadsden police officer opened fire. Jones stopped at 12th street and Malone and was caught. Nobody was hit by bullets and there will be an investigation into the shooting.
