Two escaped killers from a Utah prison have now been found. One of them is in the hospital this morning after he was shot in a high speed chase with police.

Sunday in Wyoming, Danny Martin Gallegos and Juan Carlos Diaz–Arevalo were caught after their vehicle's tires blew after running over a spiked strip.

Authorities said the men got out of the vehicle holding weapons, and that's when police shot Gallegos in the abdomen. He is listed in critical but stable condition at a hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The second suspect, Juan Carlos Diaz–Arevalo is behind bars.
