RICHLAND, WA - The manhunt is over for the suspect in a Richland shooting last week.

Police say James Leroy Davis III called police in Moses Lake on Monday to turn himself in. Officers arrested Davis at a relative's house in Moses Lake.

Davis was wanted on a felony warrant. Police say he shot 20 rounds at a car with three passengers inside in the Queensgate area last Thursday and then drove away.

No one was seriously injured in the gunfire.

Police credit the arrest to cooperation between multiple agencies to put pressure on all of Davis' contacts in hopes it would lead to his surrender.

"There was so much pressure being brought to bear by law enforcement in Benton County, Franklin County and Grant County that every place he visited, every person he knew was constantly being contacted by either a police officer, deputy, sheriff or U.S. Marshal. The pressure just got to be too much so he wanted to turn himself in," said Capt. Mike Cobb, Richland Police Department.

Yakima County also helped with the case when the suspect's car was found outside a Sunnyside apartment complex.

Davis is currently in Grant County Jail and will be transported to Benton County Jail soon.

He faces first degree assault charges.
