Good morning @metronewyorkl. Your Metro6@7 includes the BET awards, Morrissey at The Garden, and a prison break redux.
It’s over: David Sweat, one of two New York state inmates who escaped from prison three weeks ago, was shot by police near the Canadian border and rushed to a local hospital on Sunday, two days after his accomplice was killed.
Morrissey, with Blondie, rocked meatless, “cruelty-free” Madison Square Garden Saturday night in a politically-charged show that had both Moz and Debbie Harry in fighting form. Editor-at-large John A. Oswald reports.
Metro’s Emily Laurence looks at Sunday’s BET awards. Call it a comeback: All eyes were on Janet Jackson. The singer was honored in a tribute, which included a performance by Ciara. PLUS: all the big winners.
