A suspect in a Jan. 10 shooting in Hemby Bridge turned himself in to law enforcement Sunday.

On Jan. 10, the Union County Sheriff's Office began a search for Joshua Eugene Caldwell, 21, after an altercation and shooting at 4109 Faith Church Road in Hemby Bridge.

Caldwell had been involved with an argument with two people at the time. During the incident shots were fired, one of which hit Travis Baker, 19, who lived at the residence. Baker was taken to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte where he was treated and later released. No one else was injured in the incident.

During the search for Caldwell, the Union County Sheriff's Office released a wanted poster with Caldwell's photo, details about his appearance and other information.

"He (Caldwell) turned himself in at about midnight Sunday," Capt. Ronnie Whitaker of the Union County Sheriff's Office said.

Caldwell has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, according to the Union County Sheriff's Office website.

As of Monday afternoon, Caldwell was still in the Union County Jail under a $20,000 bond. He has a Feb. 19 court date, Whitaker said.
