DETROIT (WWJ) – A 26-year-old Detroit man has been charged Sunday for allegedly firing three shots at an undercover Wayne County Sheriff’s deputy on the city’s east side.

Police say Andrew Knott fired from a car at the 7-Mile/Ferguson Marathon gas station off the Southfield Freeway on Thursday. The area is known for narcotics trafficking.

The officer was not injured.

Knott is being held on a $1 million dollar bond. If convicted of the attempted murder and firearm charges, he could spend life in prison.
