WASHINGTON (AP) — Authorities say a man accused of killing a Census Bureau guard before leading police on a car chase through Maryland and Washington has been charged with armed kidnapping and assault on a police officer.

The Metropolitan Police Department said Ronald Anderson was charged Friday. He turned 48 Thursday, the day of the crime spree and chase. The chase ended with an exchange of gunfire that left him and an officer wounded.

The department says Anderson remains hospitalized but did not comment on his condition. The wounded officer is recovering.

The guard who was shot, Lawrence Buckner, died at a hospital in Cheverly, Maryland, after the shooting. The woman who was allegedly kidnapped was found safe.

The FBI says the shooting was not terrorism-related. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said it's believed to be domestic in nature.
