A Golden Valley man was indicted on attempted first-degree murder charges following an alleged drive-by shooting.

On Thursday, a Mohave County Grand Jury indicted Daniel Robert Andrews Sr., 47, of attempted first-degree murder, drive-by shooting, aggravated assault and theft of a means of transportation.

Andrews will have an arraignment at 8:30 a.m. on Friday before Mohave County Superior Court Judge Robert R. Moon.

At 2:48 p.m. on Jan. 17, the Mohave County Sheriff's Department responded to a report of a passing gray-colored truck shooting at a 47-year-old female victim on Anterres Road.

The victim suffered a small cut on her face and was treated at the scene - approximately three miles from Route 66 - before being 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," MCSO Public Information Specialist Trish Carter said. "Deputies observed several bullet holes in the victim's vehicle, including the driver's side windshield."

A short time later, the Arizona Department of Public Safety 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 motive remains a mystery. The victim has told investigators she does not know Andrews.

As of Monday, MCSO has not located the second suspect, but the incident is under investigation.
