Video shows Morris fleeing hospital after shooting correctional officer

February 04, 2008

The footage on this video, caught by security cameras at Washington County Hospital, shows Brandon T. Morris running through the hospital with a gun in hand.

The security cameras caught Morris as he was fleeing the hospital after shooting Roxbury Correctional Institution officer Jeffery A. Wroten on Jan. 26, 2006.

Wroten had been guarding Morris at the hospital. The inmate had been taken there for what witnesses at Morris' trial described as a self-inflicted injury.

On Jan. 18, a jury in Howard County convicted Morris in the death of Wroten.

The judge in the case on Jan. 28 sentenced Morris to life in prison without parole.
