Authorities continue to look for a North Carolina man who escaped from the Robeson County jail by assaulting a guard while he was heading to see the doctor.

Multiple media outlets report 18-year-old Jamal McRae complained of chest pains before overpowering the officer and running out a jail door Tuesday.

McRae was awaiting trial on charges of attempted murder, kidnapping, armed robbery and aggravated assault.

Police say McRae forced a man into a car on March 29, then shot at him as he escaped and ran away.
