The search for an escaped inmate from the Madison County Detention Center has come to an end but not before another person at the scene ends up dead.

Authorities had been looking for suspect Bobby Ray Vickers in Madison County.

During the confusion, Huntsville authorities shot another man.

Authorities say the man, who got caught in the middle of the pursuit, had a knife and refused to drop his weapon, so police shot him.

The shooting victim was taken to Huntsville hospital where he later died.

The name of the man killed hasn't been released.

The escaped convict, Vickers, was spotted by a man who saw his picture on TV and called the police.

Vickers was captured by authorities and faces charges of felony escape.
