A land and air manhunt is underway on Hobart's eastern shore for a Risdon inmate who's escaped.
Graham John Enniss isn't eligible for parole until 2021, after being given 8 years for shooting in the direction of police while fleeing the law in 2015.
The public's being warned to avoid the 38-year-old from Irishtown, and drivers should also stay away from the East Derwent Highway in the Sugarloaf Road area...the prison raised the alarm around 8.30 this morning.
He's wearing black trackpants, a dark green jumper and a green beanie and is around 180 cm tall, of solid build and weighing around 100 kilograms.
Any sightings can be reported on 131 444 or 1800 333 000.
