At the beginning of the month, two convicted murderers, Richard Matt and David Sweat, dramatically escaped from a New York prison, drawing comparisons to movies and TV shows. Early this afternoon, Matt was shot and killed by police after a massive, three-week manhunt.

The news about Matt came after the New York State Police said Matt and Sweat might be heading to Canada. Potential new evidence, discovered earlier this week, led police to a cabin in Malone, N.Y. after a reported burglary.

Police said Matt shot at a driver in a camper, near Malone. After the driver called 911, law enforcement arrived and shot Matt. Sweat is still being pursued by officers, who are still unaware his location.
