GREENWOOD, Del. (AP) — A 66-year-old man has been charged with first-degree murder and other offenses after police say he shot and killed a woman, fired shots at a police officer and barricaded himself inside a Sussex County home for nearly 11 hours.

Ronald Williamson of Laurel surrendered late Sunday night after lengthy talks with state police crisis negotiators.

On Sunday morning, police say Williamson went to a home in Greenwood to confront a female acquaintance. That woman fled the home, and police say Williamson confronted another woman, 55-year-old Connie Breedling, outside. Williamson allegedly shot Breedling in the head, and then fired several shots at a Greenwood police officer.

Police say Williamson then went inside the home, where he shot a man in the hand and held an elderly woman hostage for several hours.
