San Luis Obispo County Sheriff deputies arrested a 22-year-old man suspected of attempting to murder his stepfather Saturday afternoon.

Cesar Rosales, 22, of Washington state allegedly shot multiple rounds into a car on the 500 block of Bluerock Drive at 1:20 a.m. The intended victim was uninjured.

Following the shooting, Rosales fled in a silver Dodge Charger.

San Luis Obispo Police detectives were able to narrow their search to a neighborhood in Oceano where deputies arrested Rosales. The rifle Rosales allegedly used in the shooting was discovered a short time later in Arroyo Grande.

Deputies booked Rosales into the San Luis Obispo County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder with his bail set at $500,000.

    This guy read my water meter just a few months back. Same first name and looks the same. Boy the City of San Luis Obispo Utilities truly knows how to recruit the cream of the crop

      The story says he’s from Washington state, so how could he have read your meter?

    Isn’t blue rock dr/stone ridge where the hash oil lab in the garage exploded? That is a nice neighborhood with very nice homes. After a drug den blows up and a drive by shooting within 6 mos of each other, I’d be a seller before incident number 3.

    Another example of a young Hispanic pillar of the community. Amnesty!

    I was frankly shocked they named this the happiest place….there is so much that goes on here that goes unreported and even ignored….it is insane. Right outside my door-drugs are dealt every night. My friends joke and say “hey, we were getting our pot from that same location way back in high school”. THAT LONG?? AND IT IS STILL GOING ON??? Okay….back to my happy little slo-town bubble….
