According to authorities, a dog on a walk noticed something moving in the greenbelt area.

A barking dog alerted the police to the hiding place of a murder suspect in a dense bush after the suspect had fled from custody at a hospital in Northern California. The culprit was then apprehended once more.

After attempting to flee on Saturday, Eric Abril, 35, murder suspect, who the sheriff referred to as a “very dangerous fugitive” for the April murder and abduction of a police officer, was apprehended on Sunday.

Around 3 am, the murder suspect broke free from Sutter Roseville Medical Center custody. A few miles away in Roseville, at 12.20 pm, the suspect was apprehended once more.

Sheriff of Placer County Wayne Woo claimed that after receiving a tip about his potential encounter, deputies started looking in the area.

A local who was out walking his dog claimed that as soon as the dog spotted a man hidden in the bush, it became transfixed on something in the vicinity.

When Abril, the murder suspect, was taken into custody, all he had on were the boxer shorts that the jail provided.

Following a brief pursuit by a security officer, the murder suspect ran away, sparking a massive manhunt involving 70 police officers who combed the area utilizing helicopters, drones, police dogs, and armored vehicles to go through calm suburban neighborhoods.

The murder suspect allegedly shot a California Highway Patrol officer and kidnapped two people, killing one of them, in a park in Roseville, some 16 miles (26 kilometers) northeast of Sacramento, according to the authorities.

He was then apprehended.

The murder suspect, after being charged with murder, aggravated kidnapping, and attempted murder of an officer, was held without bail.

The murder suspect was meant to be under 24-hour observation at the hospital, according to Sheriff Woo, who said he was sent to the hospital last Thursday after complaining of an unidentified “medical episode”.

The murder suspect ran down a set of stairs, out the doors, and across the parking lot to get away from a deputy in the early morning hours.

An investigation has been opened into the circumstance in which a prisoner escaped from detention.

According to Sheriff Woo, Mr. Abril’s assigned officer was awake when he escaped, and a preliminary inquiry revealed that he was able to “defeat his restraints”—including leg shackles.
