FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - An inmate who escaped from the Hood County Jail is now facing a charge of attempted murder of a federal agent.
A magistrate in Fort Worth Thursday ordered 24-year-old Jason Lee Johnston to remain in custody.
Johnston and fellow inmate Cleties Matthew Conley fled from the Hood County Jail last Saturday.
The two men, along with a woman and child, drove off in a car which was pulled over several blocks away. Conley was taken into custody.
Investigators say Johnston shot at a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent. The agent shot back, but no one was hit, and Johnston fled.
Johnston was caught Tuesday at a home in Granbury.
Johnston had been jailed awaiting transfer to a Texas prison to serve 30 years for aggravated robbery.
