Alexandria Police arrested Ibrahm Elkahlil Bouaichi on Wednesday for the murder of Karla Elizabeth Dominguez Gonzalez in the West End on July 29.

Bouaichi was transported to a hospital after his car crashed after a car chase in Prince Georges County, Maryland, with Alexandria police officers attached to the FBI’s regional Violent Crimes Task Force.

“Officers approaching the vehicle found Bouaichi with a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” according to a police release. “He was transported to a hospital, where he is currently receiving medical treatment.”
