The search for an escaped inmate is over.

Cotton County authorities say 45-year-old Robert Lee Turk was captured just minutes ago about 4 miles north east of Walters.

Sheriff Kent Simpson says authorities were finally able to chase him into the open, and he surrendered with no resistance. He is being transferred to a Comanche County Detention Center segregation cell.

Turk's charges include shooting with intent to kill and felony possession of a firearm. He's been in the Cotton County Jail since July 9th and authorities say this is his third escape.
