Over an unknown period of time, Marshall constructed a “shiv” out of anindustrial kitchen spoon. Marshall and Dave used the weapon to attack a male CorrectionOfficer, who was solo guarding the kitchen inmates and civilian staff. Marshall took theofficer’s uniform, shaved his goatee, and changed into the uniform.Marshall and Dave apparently knew the rotation of the guard’s schedule. Marshall, wearing theofficer’s uniform, approached the Harvey Tower door at shift change around 5:00 AM. Harvey Tower is the only armed tower at Jones Correctional Facility that overlooks the most violentinmates on the grounds. Two Correction Officers were manning the tower when Marshallknocked on the door. The two officers let Marshall in without showing proper credentials inviolation of Department of Corrections (DOC) policy. Marshall and Dave immediately stormedthe tower, gained control of the two officers, and obtained an AR-15 assault rifle. Marshall andDave promptly locked the tower door, barricaded it with a desk, and tied up the two officers.Hostages- One female Correction Officer- One male Correction OfficerLocation of barricade- Harvey Tower: The tower was constructed to be the highest point of JonesPrison.
