A prison inmate out for a medical appointment wrested a gun from a corrections officer and killed him, then led police on a high-speed chase in a stolen sport utility vehicle before his capture at a fast-food restaurant, authorities said.

Curtis Allgier fired a shot in the Arby's that hit no one before a customer grabbed the gun, Salt Lake City police said. Allgier, 27, was captured in an office.

Corrections officer Stephen Anderson, 60, a 22-year-veteran, was shot in the head, authorities said.
