(纽约29日讯)美国纽约州继一名逃狱犯毙命后,另一名逃狱犯28日在加拿大边境附近被捕。

美国有线电视新闻网报道,警方当天在靠近加拿大边境的纽约州小镇康斯塔堡,发现逃狱犯斯威特。

逃跑被击伤

据报道,斯威特被发现后试图逃跑,但被警员开枪击伤,当场就擒。随即送院急救,估计他可幸存。

执法官员强调,斯威特存活下来至关重要。“当局可通过他了解两人如何越狱,以及是谁帮助他们越狱。”

较早前,警方26日在纽约州小镇马隆,发现另一名逃犯马特,但他拒捕而被击毙。随着斯威特落网,纽约州警方3星期的千人追捕行动也告结束。

马特和斯威特因谋杀罪名分别被判囚25年和终身监禁。两人6日在狱工米歇尔的帮助下取得电钻等工具,然后用工具从保安戒严的纽约州克林顿监狱逃走。
