COLLEGE PARK, Md. -

Watch FOX 5's exclusive video of a shootout and chase in College Park that involved police and a stolen cruiser.

A man allegedly on P-C-P briefly stole a Prince George's County police cruiser, Thursday night, after being wounded by gunfire from multiple policemen.

The incident started around 10:20 p.m., when a concerned mother called 911.

"It's my son. I think he's smoked some PCP," Antoinette Ayers told the dispatcher. "And he, um, swears somebody's after him. And he's in here, and we have children in the house. And I don't like the way he's acting. He needs to go to the hospital or somewhere."

In response to a dispatcher's question, Ms. Ayers informed the police that her son was armed.

A recording of the call captured the son's voice. 21-year-old Andre McKoy is heard telling his mother, "I'm not playing with you, ma." The young man appeared to order his mother out of the house, and the dispatcher told the woman to comply immediately.

The mother and son walked out of the family townhouse on Lakeland Road in College Park. Police said the son held a gun behind the mother's back. When she saw the first responding officer in the parking lot of a nearby fire station, she broke away from her son.

"[Andre McKoy] then [chose] to engage in a gun battle with our police officer," Assistant Police Chief Kevin Davis told reporters at a briefing. The officer, who had been warned the suspect was armed, fired a shotgun and apparently wounded McKoy. McKoy missed the policeman, and ran away, limping, toward busy Route One.

Police say a total of three officers then attempted to restrain Andre McKoy and used Tasers in the battle. The young man managed to get away, running north on the divided highway, and, at one point, say police, he reached into the pocket of his pants. More police officers then shot McKoy, who again got away.

McKoy then apparently tore off his pants, then, according to police, tried to steal a police cruiser with no keys in the ignition. He then, as seen on amateur video shot at the scene, jumped into a cruiser with a key in the ignition. Police officers frantically tried to break the cars windows and repeatedly warned him to exit the car. The video shows McKoy throwing the cruiser into reverse, then into forward, and briefly roaring off.

Moments later, he crashed into a brick wall at a McDonalds restaurant, and was then apprehended.

Despite the gunshot wounds, police say McKoy is now in "good" condition at a local hospital. He is being charged with several felonies, among them: theft of the cruiser, and attempted murder of a police officer.

His family had no comment.

Andre McKoy is charged with:

  • Attempted second degree murder of a police officer
  • First degree assault
  • Second degree assault
  • Use of a firearm in commission of a felony
  • Malicious destruction of property over $500
  • Theft over $10,000
