Charges filed in Lopez Lake shooting incident
Sheriff’s detectives now believe the 2022 shooting was unrelated to a road rage incident
22-year-old Daniel Jacobo of Oceano was already in custody on an unrelated case associated with a drive-by shooting. He has now been charged with involuntary manslaughter, using a firearm in the commission of a felony, and making a false crime report.
Two others are being charged as accessories to a crime and also for filing a false crime report. 21-year-old Alexis Tapiapille of Oceano is out of custody on an unrelated case and is awaiting arraignment on this new case. Marc Anthony Ramos Perez, 21, of Mexico, is not in custody and is still outstanding.
On Nov. 4, 2022, sheriff’s deputies responded to the Arroyo Grande Community Hospital where a male was transported after sustaining a gunshot wound. The victim, 28-year-old Arroyo Grande resident Alexander Montero Pille, died at the hospital. The involved parties who were present during the incident and transported Pille to the hospital initially reported the shooting was related to a road rage incident on Los Berros Rd. During the investigation, Sheriff’s detectives learned the victim and the three others were in the same vehicle near the Lopez Lake area of rural Arroyo Grande when the incident occurred. Based on the investigation, sheriff’s detectives believe the shooting was unrelated to a road rage incident.
The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office has reviewed the case and has filed charges against all three suspects.
