Wright, 16, is an accused murderer. Howse, 15, has faced previous charges of armed robbery and gun possession.
Officers with the Juvenile Crime Task Force caught Wright and Howse at the Robin Hood Condo complex on Forrest Park Road.
Police say Wright, Howse, and accused murderer Morris Marsh, 17, ran out of the Juvenile Detention Center downtown at approximately 9:44 p.m. Saturday.
Brandon Caruthers, 17, also escaped. Caruthers was added to the TBI Most Wanted List on Monday.
Wright and Howse will be returned to the Juvenile Detention Center, according to Kathryn Sinback with the Juvenile Court.
Police say the remaining suspects should be considered dangerous.
Detectives initially reported the suspects were spotted in Clarksville on surveillance video at an Exxon Market on Trenton Rd. However, that report has been debunked as officers have determined the people caught on surveillance video were not the escaped teens.
After further review of the Clarksville market video from multiple angles by an MNPD Juv Crime Task Force officer in Clarksville it has just been determined that the persons in the video are not the escaped teens.

The investigation is continuing in Davidson County. The teens were last seen running on S. 2nd Street toward Jefferson Street.
According to police, at least 35 minutes passed before the department was notified of the escape. The four teens were on a work detail when their night staff supervisor left them to address a fight inside the facility. They managed to get onto an elevator and used staff protocols to ride to the ground floor where they went through a series of doors and exited to the outside.
Wright is accused in the February 7th murder of Kyle Yorlets, 24, on Torbett Street. Marsh is accused in the April 8th murder of Charles Easley, 19, on Lemont Drive.
Yorlets' family issues the following statement to News4 after hearing his accused killer has escaped:
"We just want to express our extreme disappointment at the inability of the juvenile justice system to keep perpetrators off the streets of Nashville. We are, as always, concerned for Kyle's friends who live there in this troubling environment and pray for their safety."
Caruthers has been transferred to adult court on an August 2018 armed robbery case from Apache Trail in South Nashville. Howse was last arrested November 21st on Dickerson Pike on charges of auto theft and gun possession.
