A man faces two counts of attempted murder for shooting at a vehicle following a road rage incident in Santa Monica. 

According to the Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD), on September 6 around 1:21 p.m., officers responded to a report of shots fired in the area of Yorkshire Avenue and Pico Boulevard. At the same time, an additional caller reported a hit and run near the same location. 

When officers arrived on the scene, both the suspect and suspect vehicle were gone, the SMPD noted. 

“The officers met with a victim and witnesses who reported that the suspect in this incident rammed the victims’ car from behind in a possible road rage incident. The victims exited their vehicle and while attempting to flee were targeted by the suspect who fired several gun shots at them,” the SMPD said in a press release. 

According to police, one of the victims received a grazing wound to his knee and was transported to a local hospital. 

Following an investigation, on September 21 SMPD detectives with the support of the Special Weapons and Tactics Unit (SWAT) and the Drone Team, executed an arrest warrant for Eliott Ferrando, age 24. According to the SMPD, Ferrando was arrested without incident, booked for attempted murder and held in Santa Monica on $1,000,000 bail. 

“A subsequent search of his home uncovered a handgun believed to have been used in the September 6th incident,” the SMPD said. 

On September 23, the case was presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney for filing. Ferrando was transferred into Los Angeles County Custody and charged with two counts of attempted murder with a recommendation for bail to be set at $1,008,000.

Ferrando is expected to appear in court September 27.
