'I Felt Relief': U.S. Marshals Who Arrested Frein Describe Takedown
This afternoon, Shepard Smith spoke with the U.S. Marshals who arrested Eric Frein after a 48-day manhunt.
Scott Mallkowski, a deputy U.S. marshal, told Smith that he deployed with a 13-man team to find Frein. They saw some movement in high grass and did not see a weapon. Authorities told Frein to get on the ground, and they cuffed him.
How did it feel to catch the manhunt suspect, who eluded police for 48 days?
“I felt relief,” Mallkowski said.
Scott Kimball, a U.S. Marshal involved in the capture, said he was surprised that Frein was unarmed.
Kimball told Smith how the community helped out during the manhunt, providing hot meals and coffee to authorities.
“It’s been an overwhelming amount of support,” he said.
Now, Kimball said he’s happy that kids will be able to go trick-or-treating.
The death penalty is being eyed for Frein, who is accused of killing one state trooper and injuring a second.
