HOLLYWOOD, SC (WCSC) -

A former Live 5 Most Wanted fugitive wanted in connection with a May shooting turned himself in Tuesday after US Marshals threatened to have his photo shown again on the segment, officials say. 

Rashard Keithan Duncan, of Hollywood, surrendered without incident at the Charleston County Detention Center Tuesday morning, days after arrest warrants on charges of attempted murder and possession of a firearm during a violent crime were issued. 

According to affidavits, Duncan fired at least five shots into a vehicle in the early morning hours of May 9. 

Records state the victim was leaving Shady Rest night club on Storage Road around 2 a.m. While inside his vehicle, the victim said Duncan quickly approached his passenger, raised a handgun and fired one shot into the vehicle. 

The victim told deputies he got out the car and ran to his family's house, while Duncan continued to fire four more shots at the vehicle. 

Warrants were issued for Duncan's arrest on May 29 following interviews with a second witness who was at the scene.

US Marshals say Duncan agreed Tuesday to "turn himself in," after detectives threatened to have his photo displayed again on Live 5 Most Wanted. 

Duncan was previously arrested in March 2015, just days after he was featured as a Live 5 Most Wanted fugitive. Wanted on charges of pointing and presenting a firearm and third-degree assault and battery, authorities say a viewer who saw the segment tipped officers off to his location resulting in his arrest. 

According to Marshals, Duncan said he would turn himself in because he didn't want his face on television again and have to go back into hiding. 

He is being held at the Charleston County Detention Center on a $60,000 bond.
