A massive manhunt for a Kentucky rapist accused of shooting at law enforcement officers in two states entered a sixth day on Thursday, with officials saying they'd caught two of his associates.

Floyd Cook, 62, has been on the run since he allegedly shot a Tennessee police officer during a traffic stop.

The FBI and U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force have joined the manhunt for Cook, who officials have described as armed and "extremely dangerous."

Two "dangerous" acquaintances — and possible accomplices — of Cook were detained on Wednesday night and being questioned following a chase and search in the woods, NBC News reports.
