A man who is facing an attempted murder charge in connection to a Leavenworth County shooting is not competent to stand trial.

A man who is facing an attempted murder charge in connection to a Leavenworth County shooting is not competent to stand trial.

That was a judge's ruling Friday in Leavenworth County District Court.

Andrew G. Foderaro, 19, will be remanded to the Larned State Security Hospital.

Foderaro is charged in Leavenworth County District Court with with attempted first-degree murder, possession of cocaine, a misdemeanor count of possession of stolen property and a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana.

The charges stem from an Oct. 27 incident that occurred on 227th Street.

A criminal complaint alleges that Foderaro discharged a firearm multiple times with the intent to kill another man.

The victim was taken to the hospital following the incident, according to Leavenworth County Undersheriff Jim Sherley.

Sherley has said authorities believe the shooting resulted from a drug deal that had gone bad.

Foderaro recently was evaluated at the Leavenworth County Jail for mental competency.

The Guidance Center, which is a community mental health center, submitted a report following the evaluation.

Based on that report, District Judge Gunnar Sundby ruled Friday that Foderaro does not meet the criteria to be competent to stand trial.

Sundby said Foderaro was being remanded to the state hospital for treatment and further evaluation.

“Hopefully, he will be restored to capacity after they work with him,” District Judge Gunnar Sundby said.

The criminal case will remain on hold until Foderaro is determined to be competent to stand trial.
