COPY-Chardon HS shooter TJ Lane, and two others captured after escaping Lima facility

The Chardon High School shooter TJ Lane, Clifford Opperud and Lindsey Bruce are back in police custody Friday morning after escaping from the Allen Oakwood Correctional Institution in Lima, Ohio. 

Lane, 19, was one of three inmates who escaped from the Allen Oakwood Correctional Institution at 7:45 p.m. Thursday.

Police locked down the neighborhood upon hearing the three had escaped.

Bruce was captured within 10 minutes of escaping the facility.  Bruce is serving a life sentence for aggravated murder and kidnapping. 

Lane was captured less than six hours later around 1:30 a.m. Friday with a pitchfork in hand and was returned to the prison with no incident.

Opperud, 45, was located and captured at 4:22 Friday morning by two Special Response Team members of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.  He is serving a 12-year-sentence for aggravated robbery, burglary and kidnapping in a 2008 Warren County home invasion.

Lane and Opperud were located less than a mile from the facility when they were caught.
