Santa Monica police have arrested a 20-year-old Pacific Palisades man in connection with the shooting of four people in Santa Monica July 15th.

The Santa Monica Police Department Office of Criminal Investigations and Office of Special Enforcement served search warrants at three different locations at 5:30 a.m. Friday, July 27th.

Police said they recovered evidence that may relate to a shooting that occurred in the 400 block of 11th Street in Santa Monica July 15th, when four people were shot.

One of the suspects who was allegedly involved in this shooting was also arrested, Santa Monica police Lt. Alex Padilla said.

Several handguns, magazine clips and ammunition were also recovered during the service of the search warrants, Padilla said.

The search warrants were served in Pacific Palisades at residences located in the 17000 block of Posetano Road and in the 17000 block of Porto Marina Way, police said. A third search warrant was served in the 900 block of Sixth Street in Santa Monica.

Information developed as a result of this investigation led to the arrest of Morgan Neidlinger, a 20-year-old resident of Pacific Palisades, Padilla said.

Neidlinger was arrested at a residence in the 900 block of Cloverdale Avenue in Hollywood. He was taken to the Santa Monica Jail, where he was charged with four counts of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, police said. His bail was set at $2 million.
