    The suspects, Jarret Cole Heitmann, 24, and Makayla Danielle Stilwell, 22, were spotted in Pine Bush, New York, on Saturday. They were last seen at a Wal-Mart in Matamoras, Pennsylvania, about 85 miles north of the city, earlier that day. 

    Police in Sullivan County in Tennessee say Heitmann and Stilwell kidnapped a woman and shot a man in the chest on Tuesday, then fled.
