Bond was denied for 20-year-old Andrew Lee Mitchell.

Mitchell is accused of firing shots at police officers one week ago around 5:40 p.m. on South Ann Street. 

A second suspect, Johnny Vail, was taken into custody the day of the shooting. 

Police Chief Lawrence Battiste said narcotics officers were in the area when they spotted the two suspects. According to the police chief, the men opened fire as the officers approached them.
