We had some youth escape from the juvenile detention center. Reporter: Even though they're underage, police are identifying all four. Two of them, 16-year-old decourios Wright and 17-year-old Morris marsh are accused of murder and were awaiting trial. Authorities say all four of the boys should be considered dangerous. The teens escaped during a work detail, when a security guard left a multipurpose room to respond to a fight. "In doing so, she left the four youth in the recreation area unsupervised," according to a report. As they're running out the door, you see two of them throw off their safety vests. There's approximate 35 minutes between them escaping and us being notified. Reporter: Several staff members have been placed on adminsitrative leave while authorities continue to investigate how this happened. All of the teens are still on the run.
