Officers on Tuesday arrested a man who police say fired shots into a Conway area home, officials said. 

Mack Allen Davis faces charges of attempted murder, discharging a firearm into a dwelling, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime and being a felon in possession of a weapon, said Horry County Police spokeswoman Mikayla Moskov in a news release.

His arrest came after an incident that happened April 17. Shots were fired into an occupied home on August Road in the Conway area that day.

An investigation revealed that Davis argued with the victim via text messages and threatened to come to the victim's house.

Davis came to the home, and evidence showed he fired shots into the residence when the victim looked out of a window, the release said. 

An officer saw an apparent bullet hole in the front of the home near the front door and three small holes in windows on the front of the home, according to an incident report. 

The policeman saw a spent bullet in a cabinet door in the home and opened the cabinet and saw another spent bullet on a shelf. The officer walked outside and saw ten 22-caliber shell casings in the road in front of the home.

Officers with the U.S. Marshals Task Force, Horry County Police Department, and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division arrested Davis Tuesday.

Davis remained jailed at the time of this report.
