On Sept. 6, Aldonte Jaquan Banks, 17, escaped from the Perry County Jail, according to authorities.

Officials said Banks also escaped from the jail the previous weekend.

Authorities said Banks surrendered to police near Uniontown, Alabama, late in the evening on Sept. 6 with the help of his mother and an aunt.

According to the Montgomery Real-Time News, Banks was charged with murder in connection to the June 2 shooting death of 25-year-old Jimmie Rembert Jr.

On that night, police said Banks, Rembert and another man, Johnnie Robertson Jr., were shooting their handguns into the air to see which one was the loudest.

Court documents state, “Instead of shooting in the air like Robertson and Rembert, Banks drew his 9mm pistol and aimed it at Rembert and began firing multiple times,” the Montgomery Real-Time News reported.

Banks has been locked up since the days after the initial shooting and will now return to Perry County Jail, officials said.
