GONZALES - Police said a man accused of shooting at a home in Gonzales surrendered to authorities Thursday.

Detectives booked Royal Johnson, 24, into the Ascension Parish jail on six charges of aggravated assault with a firearm, as well as charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and illegal discharge of a firearm in city limits.

Gonzales Police said on July 16 Johnson had an argument with people living at a home on Hamilton Street. Police said Johnson then got a gun and started shooting at the home, hitting it several times.

Investigators said six people were inside the home at the time, including children. No one was hurt.

Police issued a warrant for Johnson's arrest, and said he surrendered with his attorney present Thursday.
