Police say Kevin Wayne Chapman and April Lynn Stewart had planned to rob a retired D.C. police officer at his home. According to the Calvert County Sheriff's Office, the two started banging on the front door around 10:30 p.m. and were greeted by the retired officer armed with a handgun. 

When the suspects made aggressive movements, the retired officer fired shots, fatally striking Chapman. Stewart fled in a vehicle and was found at Chapman's home Monday and charged with armed robbery.

Police say Chapman had previously worked for a service company that performed work at the retired officer's home.
