Authorities say escaped murderer Danelo Souza Cavalcante stole a rifle from a garage, fled a homeowner’s gunfire, and is on the run in suburban Philadelphia. Police have closed roads Tuesday and are telling residents to lock their doors. They say they have set up a new search area in the nearly 2-week-old manhunt. They say about 500 law enforcement personnel searching or guarding an 8- to 10-square mile area roughly 30 miles northwest of Philadelphia. Cavalcante escaped from the Chester County jail Aug. 31 after being sentenced to life for killing an ex-girlfriend in 2021.
