Richard Matt, escaped N.Y. prisoner, shot dead

Escaped killer armed with shotgun refused to surrender, police say

Escaped convict Richard Matt has been shot and killed, and the search for the second escaped killer David Sweat continues, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says.

Matt and Sweat escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, N.Y., on June 6. 
Law enforcement officials said a civilian complained about a gunshot fired at a camping trailer. Police were notified and customs and border patrol agents were flown by helicopter to the area.
The team smelled gunpowder near where they believed the trailer had been hit, a sign a gun had been recently fired.

New York State Police Supt. Joseph D'Amico said border patrol agents encountered Matt in the woods, where they challenged him and he didn't comply.

"He was shot dead by border patrol at that time," he said at a news conference held Friday night. "We recovered a 20-gauge shotgun from Matt's body at the location."

D'Amico said Matt didn't open fire and that officials would be taking statements from the team involved in the shooting.
