Richard Matt, one of the two inmates who escaped from a high-security prison in upstate New York in early June, has been shot and killed by police, according to media reports.

CNN said law-enforcement officials were chasing the second convict. Evidence from a hunting cabin in the woods 15 miles from the prison was said to be the break in the search for the inmates.
