'Hunch' led to fugitive's capture

Member of the US Marshals Service say it was just a hunch that led to the capture of a survivalist and marksman charged in a deadly sniper attack outside a Pennsylvania state police barracks who had eluded authorities for 48 days.

Scott Malkowski, a task force commander with the Marshals Service, spied a figure moving from the woods toward an abandoned airplane hangar in the Pocono Mountains. Looking at his face, his black hat and fleece, and his height and weight, Malkowski was certain he had his man.

"Suspect," he told the two operators by his side, and they fanned out on either side of their quarry, who had no idea he'd just been spotted. Hidden by tall grass, Malkowski moved stealthily toward his target, adrenaline coursing through his body.
