CONSTABLE, N.Y. (AP) -- The latest on the manhunt following the escape of two convicted murderers from a maximum-security prison (all times local):

6:30 p.m. -An escaped inmate who was shot and captured in upstate New York is expected to be transported to an Albany hospital.

Albany Medical Center spokesman Jeffrey Gordon says David Sweat will be transported there sometime Sunday evening. A trauma unit is standing by.

Sweat's condition was not immediately released.

New York State Police say Sgt. Jay Cook shot and wounded Sweat after seeing a suspicious man walking down a road in Constable, a town about two miles from the Canadian border.

Sweat was captured two days after his escape partner, Richard Matt, was shot and killed by authorities.
