AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- The man wanted in a murder at an Augusta mobile home park has turned himself in.

The Richmond County Sheriff's Office says Darrian Williams turned himself in at the Law Enforcement Center on Walton Way at 3:10 p.m. Friday.

Williams is facing the following charges: murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and two counts of third-degree cruelty to children.

Williams is accused of killing Larry Bernard Elam Jr. The shooting happened Thursday around 12:30 a.m. at the Augusta Estates Mobile Home Park.

Witnesses told officials that Elam and Williams had a verbal dispute before Williams pulled out a firearm, shooting Elam. Coroner Kenneth Boose says Elam was shot at least once and later died at the hospital.

The Sheriff's Office says Williams is a known gang member.

Investigators say a 5-year-old who was inside the home was sent to the hospital.
