    An ambulance, believed to be transporting convicted murderer David Sweat is escorted by N.Y. State Police to Alice Hyde Medical Center on June 28, 2015 in Constable, New York. Escaped inmate David Sweat has been shot by law enforcement and was put in custody in Constable, NY, north of Malone and near the Canadian border. On Friday Richard Matt, who escaped with Sweat, was shot and killed in the same area. More than 1,000 State Police, Border Patrol, correction officers, FBI and other law enforcement agencies have been searching for the pair since they were discovered missing from a prison in nearby Dannemora on June 6.

    Authorities say a 2-year-old girl was wounded when a gun was fired at a Florida home.

    The Florida Times-Union reports three adults, the girl, her twin sister, and another boy were inside the house when the shooting happened in Jacksonville, Florida.

    Jacksonville Sheriff's Officer Lt. Shawn Coarsey said the gunshot wound to the foot was not life-threatening.

    Coarsey said the adults heard a gunshot and ran into a front bedroom where they found the girl injured.

    The girl's mother and grandmother live at the home with an adult family friend. The friend and his girlfriend were at the home when the shooting happened.

    It wasn't immediately clear who owned the gun or how the gun was fired.
