After eluding authorities for more than a day, a former Marine rifleman wanted for allegedly shooting at his girlfriend's Sand Hill home Sunday gave himself up to the Marshall County Sheriff's Department on Tuesday.

A warrant had been issued for the arrest of Adam Riggle, 31, of Sand Hill following the incident in which he allegedly fired at least 11 shots in and around his girlfriend's residence. According to Sheriff Kevin Cecil, Riggle fled before authorities arrived and was believed to be armed and potentially dangerous to law enforcement officials.

Cecil said he believed the general public was not in harm's way.

Cecil said nobody was injured during the incident, as Riggle's girlfriend fled the area once the first shots were fired.

Numerous officers and federal officials searched several residences Monday in an unsuccessful attempt to locate Riggle.

Officers contacted members of Riggle's family in Marshall County, who arranged for him to turn himself in.

"I think it was simply a domestic situation," Cecil said. "It was a domestic argument that elevated."

Riggle was charged with endangerment involving a firearm with domestic violence and unlawful restraint involving a firearm. On Tuesday afternoon, Cecil said Riggle was arraigned in Marshall County Magistrate Court with bond set at $100,000.

He was not listed as an active inmate on the Division of Corrections website Tuesday evening.
