UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — A man who opened fire on a Maryland police station faces a prison sentence for his conviction on a murder charge in the blue-on-blue killing of an undercover detective who tried to end the gunman's attack.

Michael Ford is scheduled to be sentenced by a Prince George's County judge on Thursday, more than two months after a jury convicted the 25-year-old man of second-degree murder and other charges.

Ford's two younger brothers, Malik and Elijah Ford, drove him to the police station and videotaped the March 2016 shooting with their cellphones. They pleaded guilty to related charges and also are scheduled to be sentenced Thursday.

Detective Jacai Colson exchanged gunfire with Ford before a fellow officer fatally shot the plainclothes narcotics detective, mistaking him for a threat.
