Nationwide manhunt for 2 escaped inmates underway as police search for suspects.

Two murderers who escaped from a prison by cutting through steel walls and pipes remain on the loose as authorities investigate how the inmates obtained the power tools used in the "Shawshank Redemption"-style breakout.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the escape over the weekend was a "sophisticated plan" and announced a $100,000 reward for information leading to men's capture.

David Sweat, 34, was serving a sentence of life without parole for the 2002 killing of a sheriff's deputy. Richard Matt, 48, had been sentenced to 25 years to life for kidnapping, killing and dismembering his former boss in 1997.

"These are killers. They are murderers," the governor said. "There's never been a question about the crimes they committed. They are now on the loose, and our first order of business is apprehending them."

Officer on leave after graduation party incident as investigation continues.

McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley said at a news conference Sunday that the incident began when officers responded Friday to a report of a disturbance involving a group of juveniles at a neighborhood pool.

The police department said in an earlier statement that the young people did not live in the area or have permission to be there.

When officers arrived, residents and private security pointed out the juveniles, who were "creating the disturbance, fighting and refusing to leave," Conley said.

As officers dispersed the crowd, the 14-year-old girl was "temporarily detained" by an officer, said Conley, who did not describe what led to her detainment.

The video showed the officer pulling the bikini-clad girl to the ground then appearing to use his knees to pin her facedown. He can also be seen pointing his gun at other teens and cursing.

A suburban Dallas police officer has been placed on administrative leave after a video showed him pushing a 14-year-old girl in a swimsuit to the ground outside a pool and pointing his gun at other teens.
