A manhunt across the South ended today when a man from Tennessee stopped two fugitives, holding them at gunpoint until authorities arrived.
During a police chase through Tennessee the fugitives crashed their car, then Donnie Russell Rowe and Ricky Dubose fled through the woods. They came upon a home and attempted to steal a vehicle parked nearby.

When the homeowner realized his vehicle was being targeted by thieves, he responded by confronting them with a firearm. He didn’t know at the time that the two men were fugitive murderers. With help from his neighbor, also armed, the two escapees were held until police could assist.
Two good guys with guns stopped two murderous fugitives. Here are the two right after law enforcement arrived:
