Adrian Glenn

Adrian Glenn, 37, was found guilty by a jury of attempted murder, discharging a weapon into a vehicle, and pointing & presenting a firearm in connection to an incident in August 2017 where law enforcement says he fired into an occupied vehicle. 

SPARTANBURG COUNTY, SC (FOX Carolina) Solicitor Barry Barnette announced Wednesday that after a three day jury trial, a Spartanburg man was sentenced to 30 years in prison for attempted murder. 

According to a release, Barnette says 37-year-old Adrian Glenn and another man were in an argument over money in August 2017 outside a Whitlock Street home. Glenn reportedly fired into the man's fleeing vehicle five times. 

The man reported the incident to law enforcement, naming Glenn as the shooter. Spartanburg Police were able to track down Glenn a short distance from the crime scene with a young child in his vehicle. 

Glenn has a prior criminal record that includes the following: 

  • Unlawful carrying of a weapon
  • Discharging a firearm and possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a crime carrying more than a year in prison
  • Receiving stolen goods
  • False information to police
  • Failure to stop for a blue light or siren

On December 4, a circuit court judge issued Glenn a 15 year prison sentence for his attempted murder charge. An additional ten years were tacked on for discharging a weapon. His pointing and presenting a firearm added five years, bringing his total sentence to 30 years.
