An Andrews man pleaded guilty this week to an attempted murder that occurred in August 2013, according to a press release.

Assistant Solicitor Ricky Todd said Keenan Hurrell, 23, was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

The charges stem from Aug. 31, 2013 when police in Andrews were attempting to question Hurrell and two others for drinking in public and smoking marijuana, the release said.

An officer attempted to pat down Hurrell to check for weapons when Hurrell ran inside a club. Hurrell shot at the officers who returned fire. Neither Hurrell nor officers were injured, but there was damage to nearby buildings and merchandise.
