HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- Huntersville Police say the man who suspected of shooting a female family member and then escaping a SWAT standoff has turned himself into police.

Officers responded Saturday morning to a shooting on the 100 block of Steuben Drive to find a woman suffering from a gunshot wound. Authorities believe the shooting stemmed from a domestic dispute.

Police and SWAT were called in and remained on the scene for hours. Shortly before noon, the North Mecklenburg SWAT Team made entry into the residence, but found that Williams was no longer inside. It appears he fled the scene during the time officers were focused on evacuating the victims and other occupants, police say.

Williams was let out of jail on bond Tuesday morning. He is scheduled to make his first court appearance Wednesday afternoon.
