HARTFORD, Connecticut (AP) – Connecticut state police say a fugitive student wanted for two Connecticut murders has been captured in Maryland.

Peter Manfredonia had been the subject of a six-day search involving several police forces and the FBI. Connecticut state police said the 23-year-old University of Connecticut killed a 62-year-old man and injured another in northeast Connecticut on Friday before stealing guns and a truck.

Police said Manfredonia traveled south to Derby, where he killed a high school classmate on Sunday, before kidnapping the man’s girlfriend and traveling to New Jersey. He was later spotted using a support service in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Police said no member of the security forces was injured and state police will release more information on Thursday.
