Shots Fired in Pryorsburg, Deputy Threatened
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PRYORSBURG - A Pryorsburg man was arrested Friday afternoon after he allegedly fired a gun at two juveniles and threatened a deputy.

The Graves County Sheriff's Office said deputies went to KY 1748 East in Pryorsburg for a report of gunshots being fired at two juveniles.
Deputies learned that the juveniles were riding ATVs when a man fired a shotgun at them on Calhoun Street. The alleged shooter was identified as 25-year-old Kendall Andreason.
Deputies went to Andreason's home and were able to get him to come outside of the home unarmed. They said he became belligerent and threatened to kill one of the deputies.
After a few minutes of face to face negotiations, he attempted to flee back inside the home. Andreason was subdued and arrested on two counts of first degree wanton endangerment.
Deputies found a 12 gauge shotgun under Andreason's bed.  A 12 gauge shell casing was found in the front yard of the home and the same type of  ammo was found near the shotgun when it was recovered.
Andreason was taken to the Graves County Jail. 

In addition to the wanton endangerment charges, he was also charged with 2nd degree disorderly conduct, menacing, 3rd degree terroristic threatening, resisting arrest, and possession of a legend drug.
