SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The man accused of walking into a West Springfield grocery store with guns and a tactical vest two months ago has reached a plea agreement.
Dmitriy Andreychenko, 21, was originally charged with a felony for making a terrorist threat after walking into the Walmart Neighborhood Market wearing tactical gear and carrying an AR- 15.
The incident caused the evacuation of the market.
During a court hearing today, prosecutors announced the plea agreement which requires Andreychenko to plead guilty to a reduced charge of making a false report, a Class B Misdemeanor.
He was sentenced to 180 days in the Greene County Jail, but the sentence was suspended.
Andreychenko pleaded guilty in the armed Walmart incident:
I feel great, I am glad the courts worked with me and had grace on me and worked with me and everything worked out great. I would like to apologize to the community. I would never hurt anyone, and I’m sorry. I appreciate the prosecuting attorney; I appreciate the judge.”Dmitriy Andreychenko
Andreychenko told police he was holding a “Social Experiment” and testing his Second Amendment rights.
He said it was never his intention to hurt anyone and this will be the last time he’ll find himself in court.
