MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The man police believe was firing shots at bewildered bystanders from inside his home Tuesday has turned himself in to authorities.

Myrtle Beach Police received the call that shots were fired in the area of Highway 17 Bypass and 62nd Avenue North Tuesday afternoon.

The incident report states a man came to the home hoping to settle a previous disagreement with 22-year-old Marcus Olanziwan Brown, but when he knocked on the door a woman told him Marcus was asleep.

Moments later, Marcus was shouting at the man from a second floor window, proceeding to fire an unknown number of shots from a pistol at him and his car. There were three other people in the car trying to get away from the gunfire.

MBPD spokesman Captain David Knipes says Brown turned himself in Tuesday evening to face four counts of attempted murder.

During Marcus' bond hearing Wednesday morning, a judge ordered him to turn in all the firearms in his possession and have no contact with any of the four victims. His bond was set at $100,000.

According to Knipes, no one was injured.
