Pennsylvania Police Say Escaped Convict is Armed with a Stolen Rifle

Cavalcante escaped from prison last week

A Pennsylvania resident shot at a convicted killer who was stealing a rifle from his home Monday night, police say, a week and a half after the "extremely dangerous" fugitive escaped from a nearby prison.

The Pennsylvania State Police posted on X at about 2 a.m. Tuesday that officers were pursuing Danelo Cavalcante, 34, in South Coventry Township, Pa., in Chester County, west of Philadelphia. Authorities warned residents to not approach Cavalcante if they see him.

"He is armed," police posted on the platform formerly known as Twitter. "Residents in the area are asked to lock all doors and windows, secure vehicles and remain indoors. Do not approach. Call 911 if seen."
