Police in Antigua said Avie Howell was shot by officers, and is in hospital.
He was found in the countryside on the island, after going on the run from prison yesterday.
I can confirm Avie Howell has been caught. He was shot following a confrontation with officers.
I do not know the extent of his injuries at this stage, but he has been taken to hospital.
In the meantime, we would like to thank the public and the media for assisting us in locating Howell.
