Update: 11pm:

The Kansas Department of Corrections says that all three men are back in custody tonight.

Allen Hurst and Scott Gilbert were arrested in Clinton County, Missouri following a car chase, shootout  and standoff with law enforcement. The men made it approximately 25 miles from the prison.

Randy Ridens, Sr, was apprehended just inside of Topeka, Kansas before 10:30 Friday evening. Ridens made it approximately 40 miles from the prison.

Update 1:17pm:

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says they have surrounded a home near Trimble, Missouri (Clinton County). Two of the escaped convicts are said to be in the home. The third man is unaccounted for currently. Authorities have not said which men are in the home and which man remains unaccounted for.

An alert Platte City, Missouri officer spotted a vehicle on Interstate 29 around 10 a.m.. That officer believed that the occupants resembled two of the escapees. The officer gave chase and was joined by the Platte County Sheriff's Office. The escapees fired shots at law enforcement while on Interstate 29.

After exiting the Interstate, the chase wound through Edgerton, Missouri and east on State Highway Z. The men ran into a home in the area of Highway Z and U.S. Highway 169. The two men remain holed up in that home as of this update.

Officials say they currently have "no info" on the third man.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports that the homeowner told authorities that he is an avid gun collector and his collection is in the home. No one was home when the men broke in.
