WILLIAMSTON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Williamston Police said the man accused of shooting three people on Saturday turned himself in Tuesday morning in Anderson County.

Police said they are still hunting for witnesses or people who can give statements on the incident.

Chief Taylor also said there is a "possibility that it could be related to a shooting that happened in the county last week," but added that they are still looking into this and trying to determine if the incidents are connected.

All three victims remained hospitalized as of after 8 p.m. Saturday, with one soon to be released, one being transferred to ICU, and the third in "serious condition."

Just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday, police released a photo and the identification of the suspect accused of wounding three victims in the shooting.

On Tuesday, October 31, Williamston police Chief Tony Taylor said Slade turned himself in at the Anderson County Sheriff's Office and would be served with the warrants for attempted murder and weapons charges.
