Anthony Dyson, 25, Hopkinsville, was served the Christian County indictment warrant carrying charges of two counts of attempted murder and one count of first-degree wanton endangerment.

Police say that just after midnight on Jan. 1, officers responded to a call of shots fired in the area of East 19th Street.
