Galesburg Police were searching for a 24-year-old man who faced several charges, including attempted first-degree murder.

Antonio M.R. Johnson was charged “in connection with an incident that occurred on (Sunday) September 27, 2015,” said a statement issued September 28 from the Galesburg Police Department.

Johnson reportedly turned himself in to police the evening of September 28, according to the Galesburg Register-Mail.

Jail records confirmed Johnson was held in the Knox County Jail.

Johnson was charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery with a firearm, and aggravated discharge of a firearm, police said.  Johnson was accused of firing a gun several times, including three shots that hit a 20-year-old man in the leg.  That man’s injuries were considered non-life-threatening.  The incident may be part of an ongoing feud between the men.
