  • Friday, February 28, 2014

  An Andrews man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to attempted murder. Circuit Court Judge Michael Nettles handed down the sentence against  Keenan Hurell, 23, of Downing Loop.
On Aug. 31, 2013, officers from the Andrews Police Department were attempting to question Hurell and two other subjects for drinking alcohol in public and smoking marijuana, according to the Solicitor's Office.  "One officer attempted to pat down Hurell to check for weapons when he ran inside a club to avoid the officers. Hurell continued to run and started shooting at the officers causing them to take cover and return fire. Hurell continued running through a field was able to avoid the officers and get away. Neither Hurell or the officers were injured during this incident but there was damage to nearby buildings and the merchandise inside," the Solicitor's Office says. This case was prosecuted by Assistant Solicitor Ricky D. Todd, Jr.
