September 23, 2021 -- Santa Monica police -- backed by their SWAT and Drone teams -- arrested a man Tuesday suspected of a road rage shooting in the Pico Neighborhood this month.

The officers executed an arrest warrant for Eliott Ferrando, 24, who was arrested without incident in the Los Angeles area, booked for attempted murder and held in Santa Monica on $1 million bail.

"A subsequent search of his home uncovered a handgun believed to have been used in the September 6th incident," said Sgt. Erika Aklufi.

Police had been searching for the man suspected of shooting at two victims after ramming their car near the corner of Yorkshire Avenue and Pico Boulevard.

"The victims exited their vehicle and while attempting to flee were targeted by the suspect who fired several gun shots at them," Aklufi said.

"One of the victims received a grazing wound to his knee and was transported to a local hospital," she said.

The case was presented to the Los Angeles District Attorney for filing on Thursday.

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.
