Soto’s arrest follows a long manhunt that began Tuesday just after 11 a.m. following the shooting on Charlie Brooks Road.

He has been charged with one count of felony attempted murder, one county of felony assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, and one count of misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon. He has been given a $475,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in Chatham County District Court on Feb. 20, a sheriff’s office official said.
