Suspect loses control of car after chase and escape from Pottawattamie jail

An Iowa sheriff's deputy died from his injuries Monday after being shot by an inmate who escaped from county jail, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

Morgan, 59, was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha for treatment.

Correa-Carmenaty is being held at the Douglas County Jail in Omaha.

No graveside service will be held.

Authorities are still working to determine how Correa-Carmenaty obtained the gun and whether he had been able to free himself from his shackles during the ride back from court.

A suburban Dallas police chief said Monday that his department wrongly described why an officer fired into a moving vehicle and killed a black 15-year-old, after an attorney for the boy's family said officers were. Omaha Police pursued Correa in the stolen Nissan Sentra after he dropped off a woman who was still in the vehicle near R.L.'s Liquor at 30th & Laurel.

Correa-Carmenaty has been charged in Douglas County with kidnapping, use of a firearm to commit a felony, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and operating a vehicle to avoid arrest. He tried getting onto Interstate 480 near downtown and hit a barrier before being taken into custody, Danker said. Delivered at 11 a.m. Monday-Friday.

A spokesperson at Nebraska Medicine tells WOWT 6 News they have two patients at the hospital from the Pottawattamie County Jail shooting scene.

The Omaha judge set his bail at $10 million, but Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said after the hearing that the public defender's office informed him that Correa-Carmenaty would agree to be extradited to Iowa during a hearing on Thursday.

If Correa-Carmenaty does not waive extradition, then the Nebraska and Iowa governors would sign documents ordering him back to Iowa, which can take up to 60 days, Kleine said.

Two deputies were transporting Correa-Carmenaty back to the Pottawattamie County Jail in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Monday after he was sentenced to 45 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter and attempted murder in a separate case.

Kleine's office just got the paperwork from Iowa late Wednesday morning and they are now adding a charge of Fugitive from Justice.
