An inmate who stole a Dallas County Sheriff's deputy's revolver and escaped from Parkland Hospital surrendered Tuesday, after officers cornered him in a parking lot.

Franklin Davis, 30, was taken into custody after the hourlong standoff. Davis stole the deputy's service weapon at about 8:30 p.m. After surrendering, he complained of chest pains and was returned to the hospital, reports CBS DFW.

Davis is facing capitol murder charges in the death of 16-year-old Shania Gray. Davis is accused of murdering Gray to keep her from testifying against him in a sexual assault case. Davis told WFAA that demons made him assault Gray.

clearly no happy ending here.

Why did Davis survive the standoff? Surely a sniper could have ended the entire episode in a way that would have better benefited the community and saved the taxpayers a huge chunk of change.

Too bad this is going to trial. It's gonna cost the taxpayers a ton, and in the meantime this sack of shit gets free room and board and medical too. I hope he realizes what a burden he is to us all. Especailly the family of the victim, and just ends it all.
