Brother-in-Law Charged With Shooting Encino Businessman
The brother-in-law of a jewelry businessman has been charged with suspicion of attempting to kill the man in his Encino driveway, police said tonight.
The violence appears to involve an allegedly "sizable" jewelry theft for which David Nahman, 53, was also charged in a separate case, the LAPD said in a statement.
That theft was being investigated by Beverly Hills police, cops said:
The LAPD says victim Amir Wolf, 47, was shot after he arrived home and parked in his driveway Jan. 8. According to a statement from the department:
As Wolf was arriving to his home and pulling into the driveway, an armed male suspect approached on foot and fired at him as he got out of his vehicle. The suspect then ran to a vehicle that was parked on a nearby street.

Now we know why: Nahman was also charged with suspicion of witness tampering, the LAPD said.
