Troopers and law enforcement officers continue to search for Ralph Phillips, an escaped convict who is also a suspect in the June shooting of a New York State Trooper. Phillips was spotted Tuesday in Niagara County but was able to flee through a wooded area.

Phillips is suspected in the shooting of Trooper Sean Brown on June 10 during a traffic stop in the town of Veteran. Brown was shot in the side and just recently returned to full patrol duties.

There is a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Phillips. If you have any information on his whereabouts, please contact your local State Police station.
