Attempted-murder charge filed in shooting

A 36-year-old Los Angeles man accused of a shooting in Spokane has been charged with attempted murder.

Andrew T. Burns is to be arraigned on the charge this afternoon in Superior Court. He was arrested on a first-degree assault charge June 3 after allegedly shooting Kenneth R. Grooms, 40, in a confrontation down the block from Grooms’ home near East Mallon Avenue and North Madelia Street.

Burns is a suspect in ongoing crack cocaine investigation. He was arrested in February in connection with the probe but has not been charged.
