SCHRIEVER, La. (AP) — Louisiana authorities say a 38-year-old man is accused of killing a woman and wounding a man, then shooting at five state troopers who tried to stop his car an hour later.

Louisiana State Police say one officer was slightly wounded, but investigators don't know whether it was by a bullet. The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office says Patrick Waddle of Schriever was arrested early Sunday on charges of first-degree murder of 51-year-old Lisa Eschete and attempted second-degree murder of a man who was with her.

Louisiana State Police said Monday that five counts of attempted first degree murder of a police officer had been added.
