Investigators have charged 20-year-old Alcantara Garner with three counts of aggravated assault and one count of shooting into an occupied vehicle.

Numerous tips were received through the Crime Stoppers hotline, and using some of that information, investigators were able to further the case and have several felony warrants issued for Garner’s arrest.

Garner surrendered himself to investigators on Monday night at Police Headquarters. He was questioned about the incident and later booked on the related charges.

Garner will remain in custody as he awaits his initial court appearance, and the investigation is still ongoing.
