On November 7th 2012, at approximately 12:09 AM the San Luis Obispo Police Department received a call regarding a man screaming in the area of Santa Rosa Park. San Luis Obispo Police responded to Santa Rosa Park and upon arrival officers located a male subject who had been shot in the back with what appeared to be a small caliber bullet. The victim was transported to Sierra Vista Hospital for treatment. Doctors were unable to remove the bullet, due to the fact it was lodged between two vertebras and close to the spinal cord. The victim has been released from the hospital and is experiencing some paralysis in his right leg.

The San Luis Obispo Police Department began an investigation into the incident. During the investigation it was discovered that the suspects met in San Luis Obispo and developed a conspiracy to steal money from the victim who was attempting to purchase a large quantity of marijuana. When the suspects confronted the victim he began to run and one of the suspects shot him in the back as he fled.

Any further questions should be referred to the Press Information Officer. Anonymous information may be referred to Crime Stoppers @ (805) 549-STOP or contact them online at www.slotips.org

Within days several local people including suspects Silveira, Lopez, and Fierro were identified as participants in the crime and were arrested. Other suspects were identified as residing in the Fresno Ca. area.

On December 6th the San Luis Obispo Police Detectives responded to Fresno County with multiple search and arrest warrants for suspects Singxaydene, Ma and Soundara. With the assistance of Fresno County SWAT, Fresno Police SWAT, Clovis SWAT, Hanford Police and Visalia Police search warrants were simultaneously served in the:

6000 block E. Olive, Fresno 3000 block N. Brawley, Fresno 4000 block W. Dakota Ave, Fresno.

During the service of the search warrants suspect Singxaydene was taken into custody. Suspects Ma and Soundara were not located but have warrants for their arrest. During the service of the search warrants multiple weapons were recovered. At this time it has not been determined if any of these weapons were used during the incident at Santa Rosa Park. In addition hundreds of pounds of processed marijuana were seized by the Fresno County Sheriff's Department.

"We are fortunate these crimes do not occur in SLO as often as in other communities. When they do, we want to send a loud message that we will do whatever it takes to find those responsible and hold them accountable. I think we've sent that message with these arrests and weeks of diligent police work." - Stephen Gesell, San Luis Obispo Chief of Police

Currently the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to call the San Luis Obispo Police Department at (805)781-7317 or Crime Stopper at (805)549- STOP.
