A local resident wanted in connection with a Louisiana murder case has been apprehended in College Station. But he didn't go down without a fight.

Charles Keys Jr., 20, was taken into custody shortly before noon Friday after allegedly ramming into a police cruiser while trying to flee. Keys is charged with evading arrest, unauthroized use of a motor vehicle, child endangerment and parole violation.

College Station police were alerted by Alexandria, Louisiana police to be on the lookout for Keys who they considered a person of interest in a Sunday homicide. College Station police located the stolen vehicle Keys was believed to be using in the parking lot of Albertson's on Longmire. The woman using the vehicle at the time directed police to her residence at the Taos Apartments where she said Keys was staying.

After arriving at the complex, police say they spotted Keys trying to flee in another vehicle with two small children onboard. After hitting the police cruiser, Keys was taken into custody.
