NBC News
Convicted murderer and escaped inmate David Sweat was shot near the Canadian border Sunday, multiple New York state officials with knowledge of the investigation and manhunt told NBC News.

Sweat’s condition was not immediately known.

The news comes more than three weeks after Sweat broke free from Clinton Correctional Facility, and two days after his partner was killed by law enforcement.

Richard Matt, 49, the man who escaped with Sweat, 35, on June 6, was shot dead in Malone, which is about 40 miles away from the prison and 20 miles away from the Canadian border.
