A man wanted for shooting into a duplex with six people inside Wednesday night is now in custody.

Greenville police say Quincy Godley turned himself in shortly after 4:00 p.m.

He is charged with felonious restraint, second degree kidnapping, possession of firearm by a felon and shooting into an occupied dwelling.

His bond is $500,000.

It all happened around 10:35 p.m. on Westover Drive. Tasha Foye says at least 15 rounds hit her home.

Foye says Godley lived four doors down, and the shooting happened after the man got into an argument with her 17-year-old daughter's boyfriend.

"It sounded like a cannon," said Foye. "I ran and hid in the bathroom. I jumped on the floor, and I was just frantic. After the shots were over I came out and saw everything that had happened to the door, the glass shattered, and everything like that...so I came outside and that's when I called 911."
