A 16-year-old killer who escaped a youth justice facility on Saturday has been captured.
The teenager broke out of the facility in South Auckland with another inmate, and had been on the run.
He was seen in Wiri, Auckland, this afternoon and arrested after a chase on foot.
He will appear in the Youth Court tomorrow, charged with escaping lawful custody.
The other teen, a 17-year-old, remains on the run.
