MALONE, New York (CNN) -- Escaped murderer David Sweat has been shot and is in custody, law enforcement sources told CNN on Sunday.

He is the second of the two convicted murderers who broke out of a maximum-security prison near the Canadian border, who was on the run. On Friday, Richard Matt was shot three times in the head when he was confronted by authorities, according to autopsy results released by police.

Sweat's shooting and arrest effectively ends a manhunt that began when the pair escaped three weeks ago.
