Suspect surrenders in Sept. 12 shooting in Taylor
Taylor — A man wanted in connection with a non-fatal shooting last month has turned himself into police, officials said Tuesday.
Walter Clyde Hollandsworth, 21, is suspected in the Sept. 12 shooting of a 20-year-old man on the 6100 block of Dean.
Police said the victim was shot in the abdomen. He had surgery and is recovering at home.
After eluding police for weeks, Hollandsworth turned himself in Monday night, according to officials.
"Hollandsworth, accompanied by several other people, walked into the lobby of the Taylor Police Department Sept. 30," police said in a statement. "He identified himself and told the desk officer 'I want to turn myself in.'”
Officials said Deputy Chief Richard Hopper took Hollandsworth into custody without incident and he was processed into the system.
Police also learned he was wanted on warrants from other communities.
He was charged with assault with intent to commit murder. A judge ordered him held on a $750,000 bond and scheduled his next court appearance for Oct. 14.
