A Woodleaf man accused of shooting another man multiple times following a June 30 argument inside the Waffle House restaurant has turned himself in to authorities.

Jaquan Kamari Morris, 29, of the 400 block of Geter Road, was formally charged Wednesday morning with felony attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

Salisbury Police detectives said Morris argued with East Spencer resident Dundrielle Lafrank Blakeney at the restaurant, located at 501 E. Innes St., early that morning. Blakeney was shot multiple times and was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem.

Morris was issued a $125,000 secured bond.
