Escaped Oklahoma inmate captured, alleged accomplice wounded

ALLEN, Okla. (AP) – Authorities in Oklahoma say a woman accused of helping an inmate who escaped from Logan County has been shot after she brandished a weapon at law enforcement officers.

The U.S. Marshals Service says 41-year-old Adam Misty Quilimaco was apprehended Thursday in Allen, about 74 miles (119 kilometers) southeast of Oklahoma City. Authorities say Quilimaco had been held in the Logan County Jail on robbery and possession of stolen property charges when he walked away from a work crew Wednesday.

Pontotoc County Sheriff John Christian says Quilimaco’s girlfriend, 41-year-old Melissa Grayson, was wounded as authorities took Quilimaco into custody. Officials say Grayson displayed a weapon and was shot by a law enforcement officer who wasn’t identified.

Officials say Grayson was flown to a hospital for treatment. Her condition wasn’t immediately known.
