On Wednesday, 29 suspected drug cartel members used a 120-foot tunnel to escape from a state prison in the northern Mexico border state of Tamaulipas, authorities said.

One of the inmates, who escaped close to midnight, shot to death a passing motorist in an apparent carjacking in the state capital, Ciudad Victoria, FOX reports.

The Tamaulipas state security spokesman Luis Alberto Rodriguez said 12 of the 29 have been recaptured.

Rodriguez said the inmates had dug a tunnel about 5 yards (meters) deep and 40 yards (meters) long to flee. Rodriguez said the tunnel opening was hidden in a hut that inmates had illegally constructed in a part of the prison they essentially controlled.

Ciudad Victoria has been dominated for years by the fragmented Zetas cartel.

The escape of so many inmates comes just two years after the highly publicized prison break of Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who escaped twice from maximum-security jails, the second time through a mile-long tunnel dug to the shower in his cell.

Overcrowding, corruption and inmate control of prison areas have been persistent problems in Mexican prisons.

Rodriguez said about 30 guards at the facility were being investigated and appealed for help from neighboring states in apprehending the escaped inmates.

He said the prison dates to the 1940s and is outmoded. State authorities have been looking into moving the prisoners to other facilities, outside the city.
