WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A man who was shot by Wichita police at a McDonald’s drive-through has been charged with carjacking a sport utility vehicle while trying to get away.

The Wichita Eagle reports that federal prosecutors filed the charge Friday against 30-year-old Zachary Ausdemore.

Prosecutors allege he stole a Honda CR-V “with the intent to cause death and serious bodily harm.”

Police say he was in the front seat of a stolen Jeep when police attempted to apprehend him, his girlfriend and the driver. Police say that when the driver accelerated toward an officer, the officer fired three rounds, striking Ausdemore in the arm.

After fleeing, the driver crashed and was arrested along with the girlfriend. But police say Ausdemore then stole the CR-V. A chase began, and he was arrested after the CR-V got stuck in deep mud.
