DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Questions surrounding the case of a Dallas County Jail inmate who escaped from Parkland Hospital Tuesday night appear to be answered by sources close to the investigation.

CBS 11 has learned Franklin Davis, the man accused of killing 16-year-old Shania Gray earlier this year, had been removed from his arm and leg shackles Tuesday night before taking a deputy’s gun and leading police on a manhunt through Dallas’ medical district.

Sheriff Lupe Valdez admitted during a press conference Wednesday that mistakes were made, but how and why Davis was even at Parkland has now become part of the investigation.

Valdez admits not all procedures were followed properly.

Davis is facing the death penalty after admitting on-camera in August that he killed Gray, a Carrollton high school student.
