The suspect wanted for his alleged role in a New Year's Day shooting in Shreveport has turned himself in to authorities.

His bond is set at $350,000.

Bates was wanted on a charge of attempted second degree murder of Orlando Debrow.  Investigators say the shooting stemmed from an ongoing argument between the two men.

The shooting happened around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday morning in the 2600 block of Lillian Street.  Disbrow was shot 5 or 6 times but is expected to survive.
