Posted on Monday, July 10th, 2017 at 6:19 PM

On Saturday, July 8, 2017, at 11:32 A.M., Lake Havasu City Police Department Officers responded to a report of a neighbor dispute in the 2200 block of Palo Verde Boulevard South and Pheasant Lane.   Witnesses reported hearing multiple gun shots in the area.

Officers contacted a male victim in the backyard of his residence who had been shot multiple times. The gunshot victim was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The Lake Havasu City Police Department Criminal Investigations Unit responded to the scene.  During the investigation it was learned that the two neighbors had a verbal argument.  The gunshot victim allegedly threw a rock at his neighbor, striking the neighbor in the head. The neighbor, identified as 30-year-old Lake Havasu City resident Andrew B. Bullard, went into his residence and retrieved a handgun after being struck by the rock. Bullard exited his residence and fired multiple times at the victim, striking the victim more than once. Bullard was transported to the hospital for his head injury and released later the same day.

A search warrant was executed at both residences on July 8, 2017, at approximately 3:30 P.M. During the service of the search warrant additional items of evidence were collected.

As a result of the investigation Andrew B. Bullard was arrested and charged with attempted first degree murder and three counts of weapons misconduct, all felonies. The weapons misconduct charges are a result of locating three altered firearms at Bullard’s residence during the service of the search warrant. Bullard had his initial appearance on July 9, 2017, and was held on a $100,000 bond.  Bullard was transported to the custody of the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office.

    People that do not get along,regarding the situation at hand should always try to stop and think before they react to the whole situation. What happens now? He goes to prison in this incident. And i am sure the fight was not worth going to jail over.

    Why can’t we all just get along?!?!!? I’m sure we’ve all had a neighbor once or twice that we don’t or haven’t gotten along with. I know I have but as much as I would of loved to have gotten rid of them I sure wouldn’t of gone to the extent that they did. Not worth going to prison over that’s for sure!!!! Sad sad world we live in these days. Neighbors are suppose to have each other’s backs, not throwing rocks and shooting at each other.
