New York state police are searching for two fugitives who are wanted for kidnapping and attempted murder in Tennessee.

Police said Saturday that 24-year-old Jarret Heitmann and 22-year-old Makayla Stilwell have been spotted in Pine Bush, New York, about 85 miles north of New York City.

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

The shooting victim, 34-year-old Dustin Bishop, was hospitalized for treatment of his injuries.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of each suspect.

It's not known if they have attorneys who could speak for them.
