GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) – A man wanted allegedly breaking into a home in Georgetown  and shooting at a resident is now in custody after turning himself in Wednesday night.

The Georgetown County Sheriff's Office said Francis Brian Stalvey will now be charged with attempted murder and one count of burglary in the first degree.
