A 27-year-old ID'd as Patrick Leach was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, officials said.
According to the Malibu Times, deputies nabbed him as he was allegedly trying to get away:
A man driving a black SUV was seen leaving the shooting scene shortly before deputies arrived, according to a witness. Deputies later saw the SUV near Kanan and Cornell roads in Agoura Hills and pulled Leach over.
City News Service says the attack might have been the result of a "neighbor dispute."
