Richard Matt, one of two New York prison escapees, was shot and killed by law enforcement officers Friday afternoon, a law enforcement source confirmed to Fox News.
He was killed in a remote area of Franklin County, N.Y. not far from two hunting cabins where he and fellow escapee David Sweat reportedly had taken refuge.
There was no immediate word on the whereabouts of Sweat. However, Fox News has confirmed police are pursuing him, reportedly on foot.
The Buffalo News, quoting a source, reported canine units had a “strong track” on Sweat, 35.
The location where Matt, 49, was shot is about 40 miles west of the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, where the pair staged a brazen breakout June 6.
Since then they had eluded a massive manhunt involving 1,100 law enforcement personnel.
Matt and Sweat used power tools to saw through a steel cell wall and several steel steam pipes, bashed a hole through a 2-foot-thick brick wall, and squirmed through pipes to escape.
