Christopher Voss, part of an special operations unit of the U.S. Border Patrol, tells NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt about the dramatic moment he found himself face to face Richard Matt, one of two convicted murderers who were on the loose for weeks after escaping an upstate New York prison earlier this summer. Voss says Matt was armed with a shotgun. “I engaged the individual,” he says.
