ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) — The last of three men who escaped from a county jail in South Carolina in May has been captured.

Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell told news outlets that 20-year-old Curtis Green was taken into custody by his deputies around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Ravenell planned to discuss the capture later Tuesday.

Green and two other inmates escaped May 19 after assaulting and overpowering a guard. The other inmates, 27-yearold Tyshon Johnson and 27-year-old Christopher Bolton were recaptured less than a week later.

Green was awaiting trial in 2015 shooting death when he escaped.
