Law enforcement in DeSoto County are searching for an escaped inmate.

According to Sheriff Thomas Tuggle, Joshua James Zimmerman, an inmate at the Desoto County Adult Detention Center, escaped from the courthouse on Friday. He is now considered a fugitive on the run.

Zimmerman was scheduled to appear in court for a hearing after being arrested in Southaven and charged with multiple felonies, including attempted murder. He also faces charges out of Houston, Texas where he was allegedly involved in the shooting death of a woman.
