An Arizona man has been arrested in San Luis Obispo County on suspicion of stalking after allegedly shooting at a vehicle, according to police.
On the night of February 13, police responded to the 400 block of Rennell Street to investigate a report of gunshots, reportedly finding an unoccupied vehicle riddled with bullet holes in a resident’s driveway. Police say the family was home at the time of the shooting but none were harmed.
By the next night, February 14, investigators had identified the primary suspect as 24-year-old Samuel Sparks, who is originally from Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
Morro Bay and Atascadero Police officers tracked Sparks to a residence on the 7000 block of Devon Court in Atascadero, where they took him into custody without incident. The investigation has also identified other potential persons involved as being known associates of Sparks.
Sparks remains in custody at the San Luis Obispo County Jail on suspicion of shooting at an inhabited dwelling, stalking, and child endangerment.
