Suspect Charged in Santa Monica Shooting Last Month
By Lookout Staff
March 12, 2018 -- Santa Monica police detectives filed attempted murder charges on Friday against a suspect involved in a shooting Downtown last month.
Carl Marcel Nelson, a 33-year old resident of Los Angeles, also was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and with being a previously convicted felon in possession of a firearm, police said.
The victim was found in a nearby car and transported to a nearby hospital, where he was treated for multiple gunshot wounds that were not life-threatening, police said.
After "extensive investigative efforts," detectives linked Nelson to the attempt homicide, Rodriguez said.
SMPD officers took Nelson into custody on March 7 in the 10000 block of East Flower Street in Los Angeles.
The charges were filed with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office Airport Division Courthouse.
Nelson remains in custody with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office on a $2.165 million bail pending future court proceedings, police said.
