CLAREMORE, Oklahoma -

US Marshals and several local law enforcement agencies are searching for two men who escaped from the Moore Detention Center in Okmulgee.

The Rogers County Sheriff's office said Dustin Marris was convicted recently for shooting with intent to kill.

The victim in that case was an Okmulgee County deputy who tried to pull Marris over for a traffic stop.

That led to a chase and Marris fired several shots at the deputy before crashing.

The other escapee is Coker Barker.

He is awaiting trial in federal court for murder in Indian country.

Keri Enloe with the Rogers County Sheriff's Office says members of her team are confident they can get the job done.

"We've actually assisted with crime scenes before, so we have been deployed for that and assisted with the command post," Enloe said. "We know our roles. We also practice a lot of this stuff in training. So, we were pretty prepared getting the gear together."

If you see either Marris or Baker call 911.

This is a developing story.
