NASHVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A man who was the subject of a nation-wide look out walked into the Nashville Police Department about 2:30PM Monday, and surrendered.

Police had been looking for 39 year old Duane Edwards of Tifton, in connection to a shooting incident Sunday.

The Nashville Police Department responded to the Berrien Campus of the South Georgia Medical Center, when a man showed up with gun shot wounds Sunday.

They say that Corey Davis of Alapaha, age 37, dropped off a car at a garage in Nashville, when he got into an argument with Duane Edwards.

Davis and witnesses from the scene said that Edwards pulled a gun, and fired numerous shot at Davis. He was shot twice in the stomach area, once in an arm, and once in his upper back. Davis was taken to Valdosta for further treatment.

Police issued a nationwide alert for Edwards' capture, because he is also a convicted felon in two other states, with ties to Florida and New Jersey.

Anyone with information on the shooting involving Duane LaFarrio Edwards is asked to call 911, 229-686-7666, or contact the nearest law enforcement agency.

He faces charges of aggravated assault with attempt to commit murder.
