invasion still do a carjacking that's successful unlike the one matt attempted. so this is a dangerous cornered animal right now. >> indeed. tom fuentes, thank you for joining us. that's it for "the lead." i will turn it over to wolf blitzer, who will continue with this late-breaking news. \s . happens now, breaking news escapee shot multiple source now say the fugitive rich art matt has been shot and killed. police are now chasing the other escapee david sweat. we're getting new details on the stunning breakthrough. judgment day -- the u.s. supreme court makes history, ruling that same-sex couples must be allowed to get married in all 50 states. the landmark ruling sets off jubilations, but also sharp criticism for some of the justices and some presidential candidates. amazing grace. president obama delivers a stirring eulogy for the pastor

manhunt. multiple law enforcement sources say rich art matt has been shot and killed and police are in hot pursuit for david sweat. the breakthrough follows the discoveries of what police called conclusive evidence. let's go to our national correspondent deborah feyerick. what are you learning? >> what we are learning according to multiple sources that all or correspondents are speaking to and that is that rich art matt has been shot and killed. shots were fired at a camper van, that camper van then calling 911. it may have been those shots that essentially exposed the two prisoners and where they were located. we are told that as of right now, there are no eyes on david sweat. that meanwhile they are chasen him, somehow he managed to elude authorities, but he is now alone. these men spent three weeks together even longer planning this escape.
they spent three weeks on the run trying to figure out the next move and now david sweat all alone. we don't know if he has a weapon or firearm on him. we do know however, shots were fired at that camper van, which is making its way to malone, new york, not far from the canadian border wolf. >> do they believe these two guys were together at the time that richard matt was shot and killed by police? >> well that's what it appears, because as soon as they shot and killed richard matt they took off after a person we're told was david sweat, but somehow david sweat, whether he had the advantage of distance or the advantage of cover, in that wooded area right now, we are being told as of a couple moments ago, they no longer have eyes on david sweat. that could change any minute. this is clearly fast developing. you have people from -- you've got police from the new york state police from the corrections department from tactical teams, from the special operations group and the u.s.
marshals you have a lot of people bringing all force toss bear. earlier today they were making sure that they set up a perimeter close to the canadian border setting up what was really a a line so the two men could no escape. that's camper van will clearly be a part of this investigation. >> we'll get back to deb feyerick. jean casarez is on the scene. what else are you learning, jean. >> reporter: >> reporter: people are just driving by with the thumbs up. they are happy. when this news broke, all of a sudden new york state police started leaving from the command center one by one after the other, because it was true that there was a pursuit of david
sweat. that pursuit they obviously wanted to help by air. here's what the new york state police have been telling us. offense yesterday near the village of malone that new area in the north-northwest area approaches the border of canada that a cabin was burglarized. what police tell us is what was found in there to them was conclusive conclusive. then this afternoon they actually found some things in the field area. we don't know how close to that cabin, but we were told they were processing those items at the state lab, processing it obviously for dna but they felt what they had found was extremely significant then in the next breath they said they do believe these men were armed and dangry. it was probably less than an hour ago that all this came down and began to happen. earlier today i was talking with a neighbor of thep jean palmer
she was personal friends of the man whose shotgun was taken last saturday. she said it was an antique shotgun, that it had been in the family for a long time but it was something special, something so obvious to the occupant of that cabin when they went to check on it he knew it was missing immediately. so law enforcement proceeding they were armed and dangerous, as deb feyerick has been reporting, also pam brown, that shots may have been fired to a camper this afternoon, an alleged carjacking incident so at this point, as we have said there is no eyesight of david sweat at this point. at 5:00 in this area. it is still light out, but in a couple hours, it would be dark. obviously much more difficult for those who help find this escapee. >> jean stand by our justice
correspondent pamela brown is getting more information. what are you learning? >> we have learned that apparently richard matt had gotten ahold of a gun and had shot at the driver of a camper in an apparent carjacking. that's what officials think he was trying to do along with david sweat. this was a car does that jacking. she thought she driver and the driver of that camper called 911 and alerted authorities. we have learned that after that according to sources, there was a shootout and that is when richard matt was killed. wolf? >> so the obvious conclusion is these guys are armed, at least one of them, richard matt was armed and fired a weapon. is that right? >> that's right. what officials are trying to do is figure out if of course david sweat has a weapon and where they were ability to get these weapons. we know they raided a cabin over the last few days so there's thinking perhaps they could
steal a weapon or one of the weapons from the cabin. what is clear, according to sources, there was a shootout and richard matt was killed after an apparent carjacking. >> and the hunt is under way for david sweat. i want to get a closer look at the fugitive who's been killed. brian todd has more. >> we've been reporting on these two inmaids in details. here's what we know about richard matt. 49 years old, serving 25 years to life for kidnapping and beating to death his former boss. ricker son's body was found dismembered. that took place in 1997 in north tonawanda, new york. he has a marine corps insignia on his right shoulder heart tattoos on on his chest and left shoulder. his teeth were reported to be metal noukd out by guards in mexico.
sources close to the investigation have told cnn that matt had a relationship with joyce mitchell the woman who worked with limb and david sweat at the tailor shop. mitchell is alleged to have passed tools inside frozen is hamburger meat. mitchell as attorney says that richard matt considered clinton correctional officers palmer quote, as his boy. palmers's attorney has not commented on that. after the ricker son killing in 1997 richard matt fled to mexico to get away. he served nine years there for killing a man in a bar fight in mexico. then he was extradited to the u.s. to stand trial in the ricker son case. a detective from that case described richard matt as psychotic. quote -- i have seen him inflict wounds on himself, break her collarbone and not seek any treatment. he's just totally, totally fearless and does not respond
to pain. this also wolf we have to point out, this was not richard matt's first eye scape. in 1986 he broke out of a jail in erie county, new york, but was recaptured. >> erie county is where buffalo, new york is. what do we know about david sweat, who is still being chased? >> sweat was serving a life sentence for killing this man, kevin tarsia, a sheriff's deputy. he reportedly was shot 15 times and then run over as he approached david sweat while investigating a burglary in 2002. david sweat, according to sources, also had a relationship with joyce mitchell inside the prison. one former inmate at clinton who worked with david sweat and joyce mitchell in the tailor shot eric jensen he told us he believes that sweat and mitchell had sex inside the shop's closet at least 100 times.
mitchell's attorney has denied that wolf. >> now we have confirmed that richard matt is dead that's certainly a relief to the detectives who put him away to begin with right? >> absolutely. we've talked to a couple detectives who worked on that case that 1997 murder he told me that police contacted him and warned him of richard matt's escape back on june 6th. eve detective told "new york times" he had been prepared to defend himself in richard matt came after him. we had been told by former prison wardens and others for either of these two inmates, if they had freedom of movement it might have been playback time for the detectives. those gentlemen i'm sure are grateful tonight this man is out of the mix. >> thanks for that report brian. take a look at this near malone new york. you see a police officer there. the suspicion is that david sweat is being chased in this
area. richard matt has been shot and killed in this gen area but now the hundred dollars is under way for david sweat. there is obviously deep concern that david sweat is armed. he's obviously very, very dangerous. joining us now is our law enforcement analyst, tom fuentes. also joining us on the phone is lenny depaul a former commander for the u.s. marshals service. tom, what do you make of this late-breaking development. >> i think it's a fantastic development. matt is gone now it's down to just one and they have a fairly confirmed location for where these guys had been and had been heading. so i think it's very, very likely that sweat is going to be in custody by morning. >> either in custody or dead. >> same definition just whether he's breathing or not. >> lenny, what do you think? >> absolutely. i mirror exactly what tom was saying but both of them if they were taken alive, they'll spend the rest of their lives in
segregation, so i didn't expect anything other than what's transpiring as we speak. the way it's going down hopefully no law enforcement gets hurt. that camper did call 911 on shots fired. he didn't realize that he camper had been hit until about 20 minutes after that. he got back on the phone and said my camper was struck. obviously they were trying to carjack this fellow. thank god he was not injured, and this is what prompted law infersment and new york state troopers u.s. marshals task force to respond. >> lenny, the hunt now for david sweat, assuming he's armed, this is extremely, extremely dangerous for the law enforcement personnel on the ground. >> oh, absolutely but taken into consideration with what transpired with matt and obviously they're armed, suicide by cop, who knows how this will play out. it certainly doesn't look that
good you know for him. hopefully he's contained. i'm sure sure they have him in their cross harris as we speak. and i have jails support and everyone is there. >> what worries me tom, if an individual private citizens, who may be in that area they could be in dang you realize themselves. >> they're in great danger. now that he's more desperate before. before maybe they were trying to go by stealth from one location to another, but now nothing to lose knows he's being hunted any measure he can do to try to escape now, whether it's break into a home get more weapons, carjack a vehicle, the public is in extreme danger law enforcement is in extreme danger. he's got the advantage if he's armed, could high behind trees and be a snyder as police close in. >> they're closing in but they don't have eyes on this david sweat, at least not yet. >> but he might have eyes on
them. >> well we're getting more information. i want to take a quick break. much more on the manhunt, a pivotal moment on the wailing. one of the killers has shot and killed himself, and another is still on the run, but they look like they're closing in. to create a more advanced vehicle, you use the most innovative technology available. to craft a more luxurious vehicle, you use the most skilled hands on earth. like ones that spend 38 days creating a lexus ls steering wheel. or 2,000 hours calibrating an available mark levinson audio system. the high-tech, handcrafted lexus ls. luxury, uncompromised. this is the pursuit of perfection. and when you bundle your home and auto insurance through progressive, you'll save a bundle!

wolf that border patrol tactical unit was the one that shot and killed richard matt. the authorities flooded the scene in malone new york after there was an apparent carjacking earlier today. a member or members of the border patrol tactical unit shot and killed richard matt. in case we're wondering who are they they are called in by new york state police from the very beginning. this is a unit that provides immediate response capability to emergent and high-risk incidents. so just because this is border patrol tactical unit doesn't mean it happened on the border. this was a unit that was called in very early on. they came to that area in malone new york where richard matt was shot and killed again because of an apparent carjacking. >> earlier in the day we heard the new york state police commander say there was fear these two guys were trying to
make their kay closer and closer to the canadian border. obviously the u.s. border patrol was on the scene. you're reporting that they shot and killed matt. any indications they have a sighting at least of the other escaped killer. >> that's what we're waiting to find out, wolf. we have calls into our sources right now. as you know it's a very fluid situation, rapidly developing as of about 20 minutes ago they didn't have eyes on him, but of course that could change. they obviously are in the right area. they believed they were in malone new york earlier today. it's a question of whether or not they're close to his vicinity. that is a question we can't answer right now, but hope to soon. >> stand by pamela. whiff lyle mitchell's attorney joining us. lyle mitchell is under arrest for allegedly aiding in this escape. peter, thanks for joining us. what can you tell us about your client in this particular case.
what is he saying? >> i can fill in that lyle isn't under arrest or under suspicion. >> what is he? >> really an innocent bystander. he's been questioned by the police. however there's no plans to arrest him at this point. >> his wife joyce mitchell is under arrest correct? >> yes, she's currently incarcerated. >> did he have to post bond? >> no he didn't. he didn't get arrested at all. >> what are authorities telling you about this individual? >> about lyle? >> yeah. >> they're telling me right now that he's been fully cooperative. we've made the authorities aware that he's continuing to offer his cooperation in any way that he can. >> does he believe that his wife aided these two guys? their escape? >> he does. he's spoken to his wife and gone back to the police with all the
information that she's given him. >> because he's spoken to her, he went into the prison to speak with her, right? >> he did. >> and what did she say to him? >> well she told him the entire plot and what he did was listen to her very careful, went back to the police and told the police everything that she want to him. >> and he was -- according to at least him and to you, i assume he was duped by his wife into smuggling some of these tools into the prison so they could use them to escape? >> no. he did not have anything to do with the tools going in. but he did know that subsequent to the escape and subsequent to his wife talking to him, his wife told him that she brought a couple hacksaw blades in a screwdriver bit, and a few other things. >> hold on. i want to -- i have to take a quick break. we're going to resume the breaks

>> reporter: police still out here wolf certainly looking for david sweat and keeping a close eye throughout this area. if we zoom across the area you can see where officers are still standing guard. we seeing through this area of titus mountain with the search closed in. this has been an area that investigators have been focused on throughout the week. there have been several reported sightings that weren't deemed credible but we watched the entire operation sort of thist into the town of malone after the last day. that was after discovery of a cabin where police felt they had credible evidence that the fugitives had been there. this morning they found more items that they believed were linked to these fugitives. as early as this morning, they were telling us this was really the area of concentration. we know of course they closed in on rich art matt that she was shot dead this afternoon. david sweat, they are still on the lookout for them. you request see where some of the checkpoints are still
established. wolf as this was unfolding, as please were closing in on richard matt for that encounter, you could see the operation intensify from eye level out here on the ground. things really changed in terms of the nature of the operation this afternoon. roads we were able to pass through. roads where we were able to stop and have our cars checked were suddenly closed off to everyone offices say it was imperative to just keep people out of the way, and soon quickly after that the newsbreaking they had richard matt. >> which is totally understandable. people have been to be careful. david sweat is still at large and presumably armed. alexandra, stand by. i want to get more from upstate northern what are you seeing, paolo? >> that information has a lot
the people nervous here. we spoke to a few residents who call this home. many say at least half the threat is gone. if i step out of the shot you'll see one of several authorities that have been really rushing to this area again just south of malone the clinton county sheriff confirming for us they are all rushing to the scene in an area that's commonly known as elephant head specifically the northwest side of lake titus, an area that's really just heavily visited through the wintertime as a ski resort. during the summertime there are plenty of campgrounds. we've told you before about the concern of the authorities, that people are heading up to this remote area of new york to spend the summer so that's been a heavy concern, these two in that area now today that fear confirmed, we are getting that thismgs that at least one of thinks fugitives continues on the run as authorities continue
to pour into this part. >> are you seeing a lot of activity, paolo, where you were? a lot of police activity? >> yeah about half an hour argue we were in malone about ten miles north of here and we watched as police officers rushed out of their hotels strapped on the body armor, grabbed their guns and piled into suvs, many of them running hot to this area here lights and sirens as they tried to back up officials here. several sources are getting that information at least one of these fugitives has been killed. now the search continuing for a second one. we haven't seen the police presence in the area that we have witnessed the last every 20 or so day, so it will be interesting to see how we begin to see the number of personnel steadily increase, not only on

the breaking news we're following, multiple sources now telling cnn the escapee richard matt has been shot and killed. let's get an update from our national correspondent deborah feyerick. what else are you learning? >> we're learning at about 3:45 p.m. according to the new york state police law enforcement did see a man in a wooded area near malone new york.
law enforcement shot and killed that individal, believed to be richard matt. right now they are waiting for a positive dna tests to come back to confirm 100% that in fact it is richard matt about you they do believe it is that fugitive. now, he was found about 70 miles from the canadian border. we are told in fact police believe they were moving in a north-northwest direction towards canada. they alerted authorities so that if they moved ahead they could at least by stopped. they were effectively doing like a sandwich effect. and we are told that the men were moving at night, and whatever information these two men got or had, we're also learning that shots were fired at a camper. now, the driver of that camper called 911, and it wasn't until they drove a little further that they realized that their camper van had been shot and again
they told authorities that same information. you have to they about the manpower in that area right now. you have highly specialized teams in place, tact call units from new york state police corrections, customs and border pa 2r08 u.s. marshals anyone who is up there, they were really mobilizing them because they they believed they were getting closer and closer the state police saying they did field these men were in frankly county. >> and they feel they were together. the statement from charles guest, the new york state police commander, says at approximately 3:45 approximately two hours ago, they spotted a man in a wooded area and shot and killed this man, believed to be richard matt. so it's been two hours since that occurred and in the past two hours, they obviously have intensified the hunt for david sweat. >> the one thing i want to clarify, the words i'm being told is officials are in hot
pursuit. that's the word that thoughts are using when i speak to them about this search now for david sweat, who is alone. this man who he has been inextricably linked to that man is now dead and he understands he's alone it's not clear whether they confiscated a weapon from the individual richard matt who they shot dead. stand by. i'm going to bring former fbi assistant director tom fuentes and matt fogg. what does "hot pursuit" technically mean? they know where he is and they're chasing him? >> pretty much. they feel the information is that they are close to him. >> does it mean they have a sighting of him or at least had a sighting? >> i think it means if they got one, shot one, they have to
assume they were together so maybe the dogs have picked up a scent. that's what i would think it would be they're closing off that area doing a crunch effect where they're closing in the area. >> what does it say to you, tom, it's been two hours since the authorities -- the border patrol in effect shot and killed richard matt but they haven't yet over the past two hours been able to find the other killer. >> it doesn't surprise me if he had a chance to run into the woods as the shooting was taking place or if he had already separated. so we don't know that but if they're using the term hot pursuit, the common use of that term is you're in chase mode you have him or are very close, or the dogs are howling and they're chasing him through the woods. that usually is a term means they're very close. >> but it's an extremely dangerous moment. you have to assume that david sweat, matt is armed. >> he's a cop killer so we've
got to get this guy would probably more likely wouldn't have a problem shooting at another police officer. so they have pulling on all -- their ps and qs have to be in the right place. these people know their stuff. i was on a s.w.a.t. team. there's a lot of training and understanding how these people operate. >> what advice should they be giving residents or tourists in the area. >> i think the advice would be get in your house, stay low. if you have a weapon have it in your lap and be ready. this guy could pounce in your hominy moment looking for food or carjack whatever vehicle they might have. i think at this point they probably don't want them getting out of the house and just roaming around through the county complicating their search efforts. for the most part they're going to want the public to stay still. >> you agree with that? >> i agree 100%. you have police with guns

our breaking news sources now say the escaped prisoner richard matt has been shot dead. the chase is on for the fellow fugitive, david sweat. live from malone new york that's where this drama is being played out right now. what's the latest, alexandra? >> reporter: hey there wolf. we know a chain of events led up to the shooting and ultimately the death of richard matt. law enforcement officials had told me that there were shots fired in one area. later, a bullet hole discovered in a camper. then finally, richard matt found. now our cnn producer shimon perez filling in key details how all of this went down in the area police have been so heavily focused on. we're learning that at 1:30 in the afternoon near route 30, a series of shots were fired. around 2:00 near 1:19 another
series of shots were fired. that's when somebody discovered a bullet hole in their camper but the driver didn't realize at the time that the camper had been shot at. after that we've learned that police then did a sweep of that area and that is where they approached richard matt. sources are telling cnn that matt actually approached law enforcement officers with a shotgun. we know that he was ultimately shot by police. but key here is this detail wolf. law enforcement officials telling cnn that they found two sets of tracks in that area. they of course believe the other set of tracks would plan to david sweat where there's now a very intense search for the sole fugitive still on the loose. >> stand by alexandra. we're going to get back to you. i know you're working your sources, all of our team working their sources, we'll get some more information. matthew fogg former chief deputy u.s. marshals what, do you make of two sets of footprint footprints? >> two sets of footprints, you're on the trail. stay on the trail, crunch that
trail in put your perimeter around that area should be a short period of time before they get him. >> if it's a heavily wooded area very remote you're moving in with dogs i assume tom. >> i would think so. if they've got all of these footprints and dropped items that have dna on them it should have their scent as well and david sweat's scent in particular. so i would think that that would be fairly easy at this point. we see that there's good weather up there at the moment. it's not torrential downpours. that the dog could get the scent and take them through the woods after sweat. >> how much more complicated will it be once it gets dark assuming he's still on the loose? >> i think the fact that they have a perimeter established, they could sit tight overnight, use helicopters with infrared search capability during the night to see if anything's moving on the ground, keep him penned in. in the morning squeeze in even tighter again. >> we heard earlier in the day from the new york state police that they apparently -- these two guys were trying to move closer to the canadian border. they're only right now, at least
based on what we're seeing only about 25 miles. the surviving killer only about 25 miles from the canadian border. what difference would it make if he actually got into canada? i assume the canadian authorities would be there in full mass as well. >> yeah i don't know if they would have had the type of resources that they're spending right now in the area. if they got across that border sure the canadian authorities have always worked well with us. again, to put that type of manpower on it i think they would have probably had a little more leeway once they got across. >> u.s. border patrol could go into the canadian side? >> the various agencies through their attaches in ottawa would seek permission for their personnel to go in the country would grant country clearance, and we could send all 800 officers across the border with canadian permission and u.s. ambassador permission to do that. the border's not going to be an issue. >> i totally agree, given the close canadian/u.s. relationship that would be easy to resolve. stand by much more on the
