January 3, 2018 -- Santa Monica Police are seeking information in a shooting in the Pico Neighborhood that critically injured the victim and resulted in the arrest of four suspects last month.

Jeremy Naidoo, 24, and Bryan Daniels, 23, were arrested in a shooting December 26 on the 1100 block of Bay Street, police said.

Both were charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon and pleaded not guilty in their arraignment December 28, according to the LA County District Attorney. The next court date is January 12.

The other two suspects -- James Scott and Myles Woodardwright -- have not been charged, the DA said.

The victim of the shooting, which took place at around 2:30 a.m., was taken to a hospital where he underwent several surgeries, said Lt. Saul Rodriguez, the Police Department spokesman.

Since 2016, Naidoo has had numerous run in with the law, Rodriguez said.

According to court records, Naidoo had been arrested six times since November 2012.

Last year he was charged with spousal battery and, in a separate incident, with assault likely to produce great bodily harm, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff's website.

Naidoo was placed under supervised probation, according to the court records.

Naidoo is suspected of firing a shot into the victim's abdomen after he and the three other suspects chased the victim and a witness following an argument and fight.

Naidoo and Daniels were arrested near the scene that night. Scott and Woodardwright were arrested after police obtained warrants to search their homes in the Pico Neighborhood for evidence.

Police are investigating the two men and charges could be brought against them, according to the DA.

Police believe the victim and suspects knew each other, Rodriguez said.

It has not been determined in the shooting was gang related, he said.

Anyone with additional information on the incident should contact the Santa
Monica Police Department at (310) 458-8491.
