Prison Escapee Remains on the Loose

By  | 

An escapee who sparked the lockdown of two Kansas City, Kansas schools this Wednesday remains on the run.

Police are looking for 21-year-old Harlan Epps.

He was serving time on drug charges when he escaped from a Wichita work release program last week. Officers got a tip he was at a Kansas City home. Shots were fired when officers showed up there this morning.

Two schools were locked down while officers searched the area. They believe Epps might be wounded.
