HAMLET — A man who was wanted by police, accused in a weekend shooting, has turned himself in.

According to investigators with the Hamlet Police Department, 26-year-old Kelais Omarie Worley fired six shots into a home occupied by two people in the area of Freeman Mill Road around 9 a.m. Saturday, June 18. Police say no injuries were reported.

The department published a wanted poster for Worley to its Facebook page around 1 p.m. that day.

Police say Worley surrendered on Sunday and Richmond County Jail records show he was booked at 9:01 p.m.

Worley is charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, and one count each of discharging a weapon into an occupied property, injury to real property and discharging a firearm in city limits.
