Two Bexar County Jail employees will be suspended for letting an inmate, who wasn't supposed to be released, out of jail. Last week, Vincent Barnett, 25, was mistakenly released, even though he was sentenced to five years in prison. Bexar County Sheriff's officials tell us a booking officer and a sergeant at the jail made the error. Investigators say in addition to suspension without pay the two jail employees could also be transferred. Barnett was caught and arrested over the weekend.

May 21, 2013 14:05 GMT
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Members of an elite search and rescue team from Texas have been dispatched to Oklahoma to help with recovery following a deadly tornado.
Gov. Rick Perry on Monday night announced activation of Texas Task Force 1 (one). The emergency response came after a massive twister Monday afternoon in the Moore, Okla., area left at least two dozen people dead.
The Texas rescue group includes about 70 first responders who specialize in victim extraction and medical treatment. The team also includes search and rescue dogs, hazardous material specialists and structural engineers.
Members of Texas Task Force 1 last month deployed to the town of West after a fertilizer plant explosion that's claimed 15 lives.
