LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - The Latest on the fatal shooting of an officer outside a police station in Maryland:

A police chief says an undercover police officer was killed by his own colleagues' bullets as a gunman ambushed his police station. Meanwhile, two brothers of the gunman recorded the unprovoked attack.

Prince George's County police chief Hank Stawinski says Officer Jacai Colson was mortally wounded after he arrived at the scene dressed in civilian clothes in an unmarked car and wearing no body armor.

The gunman was identified as Michael Ford, 22, who was being sought for allegedly assaulting his wife in Greenville County, South Carolina, the day before, according to a sheriff's report there.

The chief says Ford's two brothers, Malik and Elijah Ford, were arrested after making recordings of the firefight.
