Grover Beach man arrested for attempted murder
January 26, 2012
Police arrested a Grover Beach man on Saturday and charged him with attempted murder after he allegedly shot at a victim in a drug deal gone bad at the Motel 6 on 4th Street in Pismo Beach.
On Dec. 13, officers responded to a call about possible gunshots fired at the motel but didn’t find any evidence of the incident, police said. Investigators then located a car in Los Angeles with a bullet hole in the front windshield they determined belongs to the victim.
Police served two search warrants that resulted in the recovery of a firearm that is believed to have been used in the shooting.
On Jan. 21, police arrested James Heinrichs, 49, and booked him into San Luis Obispo County Jail for attempted murder with bail set at $500,000.
