A Pryorsburg man was charged Friday with menacing, terroristic threatening and two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment when Graves County sheriff's deputies responded to a call of shots fired at a home on Ky. 1748.
GCSO Sgt. David Warner and Deputy Chandler Sirls responded to the call around 2:30 p.m. at a home east of Pryorsburg on a report of gunfire allegedly aimed at two juveniles.
On arrival, Warner and Sirls spoke to the juveniles that reported the incident and their parents. The juveniles told the deputies that they were riding an ATV on Calhoun Street in Pryorsburg and, as they drove past a residence, a man, later identified by the deputies as Kendall Andreason, 25, allegedly fired at them.
On arrival at Andreason’s home, deputies asked the suspect to come outside the house unarmed. Andreason complied, but allegedly became very belligerent and threatened to kill one of the deputies.
After a few minutes of face-to-face negotiations, Andreason attempted to flee back inside the house, according to the report. A brief struggle ensued, but Andreason was subdued and arrested.
A search warrant was executed at the home and a 12-gauge shotgun was found under Andreason's bed. A 12-gauge shell casing was found in the front yard of the home that matched the weapon and other shells found inside.
Andreason was additionally charged with second-degree disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and illegal possession of a prescription medication and taken to Graves County Jail.
Warner and Sirls were assisted at the scene by Sheriff Jon Hayden, Chief Deputy Davant Ramage, Capt. Jeremy Prince and Sgt. Richard Edwards as well as Kentucky State Police troopers Adam Jones and Brian Luckett.
Hayden said no one was injured during the incident.
