The younger man claimed his father, Kenneth Andrews, and he were involved in a verbal altercation that took place in front of the CR 3518 residence. The father began shooting a pistol at him while in the driveway of the residence. The son told police he ran to his grandfather’s residence on the same property, seeking cover.

Deputies took photos of both residences and arrested Kenneth Adams at 6:25 p.m. Aug. 6, 2022, then transported him to the county jail.

Kenneth Andrews was booked into Hopkins County jail at 11:42 p.m. Aug. 6, 2022, on an aggravated assault of a family or household member with a weapon and a possession of 4 grams or less, but more than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1/1-B controlled substance after the substance field-tested positive for cocaine and weighed 4.194 grams including packaging.
