During the manhunt for two escaped murderers, Border Patrol agents swooped into the woods of northern New York after hearing reports of gunshots.

The agents spotted one of the escapees behind a tree. When he pointed a shotgun at them, the agents fatally shot the killer.

It was the first detailed report of Richard Matt’s death, the Burlington Free Press reports.

“Our agents were obviously expecting the worst on every one of those calls,” Chief John Pfeifer said. “Very challenging terrain, challenging weather, lot of stress. You’re dealing with some very bad individuals. Can’t thank law enforcement enough for bringing these individuals back in.”

Matt and another inmate escaped the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dennemora and were on the run for three weeks.

Sure, Patrick Nee has been connected to five murders in the trial of reputed gangster James “Whitey” Bulger.

But that hasn’t stopped the Disney Channel from featuring Nee on a reality show on the Discovery Channel about bookies in Boston, the Boston Globe reports.

“I’m absolutely disgusted,” said Tommy Donahue, the son of a man whom Nee is accused of helping murder.

He said he can’t understand why the feds aren’t pursuing Nee.

“His name has been thrown around a dozen times, and the government hasn’t done anything about it,” Donahue said.
