A statewide manhunt is under way in Oklahoma for three escaped inmates. The fugitives have been missing from the William S. Key Correctional Center since Friday night.
“It’s a minimum security facility,” said Jerry Massie, public information officer for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. “We think they just walked away to get out of their housing unit.”

The escapees are suspected of breaking into a home in the area and stealing an unknown number of guns, Massie said. They are considered armed and dangerous.
Christopher D. Hibl, 20, was serving time for possession of stolen property. He has multiple tattoos on his body. A tattoo on his back reads “IN LOVING MEMORY OF LAUDIE HIBLE.” Another tattoo on his left arm says “WINNERS MAKE IT HAPPEN, LOSERS MAKE EXCUSES.”
