(KDRTV) – Business was brought to a standstill in a Ugandan town on Wednesday after more than 200 inmates broke out of prison.

The incident happened at Singila Prisons, in Moroto, a town in North-Eastern Uganda. The escape was made easier by the fact that the prison is located on the foothills of Mt Moroto, the escapees just dashed into the mountains.

According to officials, the hardcore criminals overpowered prison wardens and accessed the armory which had about 15 rifles. They grabbed the guns and ran towards Mt Moroto.

Locals said a heavy shootout ensued between the escapees, whose number is estimated to be 219, and Ugandan soldiers. At least one soldier was fatally shot in the melee.

“The operation by UPDF in pursuit of escapees from Singila prison in Moroto to rearrest them and recover the stolen guns continues. The population, therefore, is advised to stay calm,” a statement from UPDF said.

The incident happened at around 4;30 PM. Authorities say three inmates had been recaptured while one was killed.
