Kokomo man charged with attempted murder after firing gun at moving vehicle


KOKOMO, Ind. — A Kokomo man is being charged with attempted murder and criminal recklessness after police say he fired a gun into the back of a moving SUV.

Andrew M. Williams, 27, faces one count of attempted murder, a Level 1 felony and one count of criminal recklessness, a Level 5 felony.

According to the Kokomo Police Department, officers responded to the area of Firmin Street and Locke Street in reference of shots fired at around 9 p.m. Officers discovered spent shell casings and broken glass.

No injuries were reported, however, as a result of the shooting.

A warrant was issued for Williams who was located and arrested in Indianapolis.
