A North Carolina state trooper was shot to death on a highway as a posse of 100 men searched mountainous terrain for two escaped prisoners from Arkansas. The trooper's identity was not released. The fugitives were identified as William Richard Bray and Jimmy Rios, both 23. Bray and Rios were among five prisoners who escaped Aug. 26 from Arkansas' Franklin County jail. The manhunt was centered in the mountains where a vehicle the men were believed driving was found abandoned.
