NEW YORK (CNN) - A man recently featured on CNN's The Hunt with John Walsh was killed Monday in Manhattan while police were attempting to arrest him.

Charles Mozdir, 32, has been on the run for two years.

He's charged with child molestation.

Two U.S. Marshals and a New York City police officer were wounded during the attempted arrest.

According to Walsh, after the episode first aired on CNN authorities received a tip that didn't pan out.

However after the episode re-aired Sunday night another tip came in.

"We re-ran the episode on Sunday night just before the original hunt and that released a cyber-tip and they got an address on him. A very shocking ending but it shows the public cares and how much they can help,” Walsh said. 

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio say the officer's injuries appear to be non-life-threatening.
