EAGLE PASS, Texas (KXAN) — A fugitive who had led police on a month-long manhunt was caught yesterday in Eagle Pass trying to cross the Camino Real International Bridge to flee into Mexico.

Shane Vernon Stull, 37, escaped from a Bureau of Prisons facility in April. While on the run, Stull was charged in Williamson County with armed robbery when he allegedly took approximately $500 in cash from a local convenience store in Taylor, Texas and shot at the cashier, narrowly missing him.

After his escape the Austin based Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office learned that Still was trying to run away to Piedras Negras, Coahuila in Mexico. The investigation was then handed over to the Del Rio based fugitive task force and enlisted Mexican law enforcement officials to help as well.

Mexican authorities caught Stull in Mexico and deported him back to the United States, handing him over to authorities at the Eagle Pass bridge.
