The hunt for prison escapee David Sweat ended Sunday afternoon in a small town five miles north of Malone when he was cornered and shot by state troopers. Law enforcement sources who spoke to the Times Union said it's unclear whether Sweat -- who was injured and taken away in an ambulance -- was armed or returned fire. No law enforcement officers are being reported as injured.
Sweat was captured a few miles from the Canadian border as search teams combed a 22-square-mile area where they said they were confident Sweat was still contained. State Police cruisers flanked an ambulance that raced south with emergency lights flashing toward Malone just before 4 p.m. Sunday, heading away from the area where the gunshots were reported.
