Man arrested on attempted murder charge, possible accomplice on the loose

A Golden Valley man was arrested following an alleged drive-by attempted murder, while a possible accomplice remains on the loose.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Daniel Robert Andrews Sr., 47, of Golden Valley early Thursday evening on charges of attempted first-degree murder, endangerment, aggravated assault and on two misdemeanor warrants issued by Kingman Justice Court.

At approximately 2:48 p.m., deputies responded to a 911 call.

"Dispatch advised deputies that a female victim was shot at by a passing vehicle described as a gray-colored truck while she was driving her vehicle eastbound on Anterres Road," said MCSO Public Information Specialist Trish Carter.

The 47-year-old female continued driving until her vehicle stopped, approximately three miles from Route 66.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety Air Rescue responded and assisted in locating the victim.

Upon arrival, deputies observed a small cut on the victims' face. She was treated at the scene and released.

The woman reported to deputies a small truck was passing her on Anterres Road, approximately one mile east of Pierce Ferry Road.

"The victim further said that the passenger of the truck started hanging out the side window and began shooting at her," Carter said. "Deputies observed several bullet holes in the victim's vehicle, including the driver's side windshield."

Deputies contacted a witness who was also traveling on Anterres Road who observed a small compact truck traveling at a high rate of speed eastbound on Anterres Road until the vehicle turned south onto Tres Road. The MCSO began an immediate search of the area.

A short time later, DPS Air Rescue located the suspects' vehicle stranded in a sandy area south of Tres Road.

"Deputies responded to the location of the truck and tracked one of the suspects lying in bushes in a wash," Carter said. "The suspect, later identified as Andrew, was taken into custody at gunpoint."

A records check showed Andrew to have outstanding warrants. He was transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail without incident.

"The second suspect is being sought," Carter said. "This case remains under investigation."
