Escaped murderer Danelo Cavalcante has been taken into custody and is alive, Pennsylvania State Police said.
For nearly two weeks, the armed prisoner had evaded capture, possibly enduring driving rains overnight.
Cavalcante stole a rifle from a garage and fled a homeowner’s gunfire on Monday night.
Heavily armed police descended on the South Coventry Township area closing roads and telling residents to lock their doors, windows, cars and out buildings.
