Videos show an Oklahoma corrections officer forced to crawl on his knees after being taken hostage by an inmate — one who was then shot and killed when he held something to the warden’s neck, officials said.
The deadly drama Saturday afternoon at Oklahoma County Detention Center was streamed live on social media by other inmates — as well as by the hostage-taker himself, according to clips shared by Fox News.
They show the officer — who officials said was “overrun” while handing out medications — sweating and looking panicked as he was on his knees with his hands bound behind him, his mask pulled down off his face.
The protest “ain’t got nothing to do with this” officer, one man was heard ranting in a clip. “He just happens to be a product of the situation, man,” the voice said.
