Police in Pennsylvania say that convicted killer Danelo Cavalcante was shot at when he stole a gun from a homeowner late Monday night.
Cavalcante escaped from the Chester County Prison the morning of Aug. 31, and the U.S. Marshals Service says he’s also wanted for a homicide in Brazil. Cavalcante was convicted of murdering his ex-girlfriend in 2021 and sentenced to life in prison.
A Pennsylvania State Police source told Fox News late Monday night that a homeowner shot at Cavalcante as he was trying to steal a rifle.
FOX 29 Philadelphia later reported that the homeowner fired seven times at the prison escapee after the .22 caliber rifle was stolen. Police say the rifle has a scope and flashlight mounted on top.
Authorities say they have no reason to believe Cavalcante was injured in the shooting. The escapee entered the home in East Nantmeal Township at 10:10 p.m.
At the time, officials say the garage door was open and describe Cavalcante’s actions as a “crime of opportunity.”
“He is armed. Residents in the area are asked to lock all doors and windows, secure vehicles, and remain indoors. Do not approach. Call 911 if seen,” Pennsylvania State Police said on social media.
Cavalcante is described as shirtless and wearing blue pants. Officials say that he is being considered armed and “extremely dangerous.”
A Pennsylvania resident in the area where Cavalcante is believed to be on the run told Fox News Digital that their kids aren’t allowed to go outside because of the active search.
“Absolutely won’t let the kids outside. Not literally just in the house all day. We live real close to the neighbors. So the only time they’ve been outside is just to literally go next door to just play with their friends for a little while,” the resident said. “I’ve never seen such a police presence in my entire life…right at the house. I don’t know how many police vehicles are literally right around the neighborhood. It’s unbelievable. The police are diverting everybody down specific roads.”
“The school district is completely shut down for the day and it’s really just reminiscent of the pandemic basically, you know, everybody’s just stuck in their homes,” the resident added.
Acting Warden of Chester County Prison Howard Holland released video of Cavalcante’s escape from the prison on Aug. 31 during a press conference last week, which shows the convicted killer crab walking up a wall.
On Aug. 31 at 8:33 a.m., Cavalcante is seen entering the exercise yard along with a block of inmates. At 8:51, he is seen crab-walking up a wall, where he goes on to push through razor wire, run across the roof, scale another fence and push through more razor wire before leaving the prison.
At 9:35 a.m., Cavalcante’s block returns from the exercise yard, and officers notify central control of a missing inmate at 9:45 a.m.
At 9:48 a.m., officers informed central control that Cavalcante was missing. The prison was locked down at 9:50 a.m., and Holland said the 911 center was notified.
