UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - A man who prosecutors say conducted an attack on a Maryland police station that led to an officer being killed has been indicted on 55 counts, including second-degree murder.
Prince George's County prosecutors said in a news release that two brothers of 22-year-old Michael Ford also were indicted this week in connection with the March 13 shooting at a Landover police station.
Michael Ford, 21-year-old Malik Ford and 18-year-old Elijah Ford were all indicted on attempted murder charges.
Prosecutors say 28-year-old Jacai Colson, an undercover narcotics detective, was killed by a colleague who police said mistook him as a threat.
Authorities say Michael Ford's brothers drove him to the police station, where he began firing at the building and vehicles. Police say the brothers recorded the gunfight on cellphones.
