A man has been arrested and charged with shooting his brother-in-law in front of the victim's children in a tony Encino enclave.

David Nahman, 53, allegedly shot Amir Wolf, 47, in Wolf's Encino driveway on Jan. 8. Wolf was getting out of his car with his two children when he was shot four times in the chest. Wolf survived the attack, CBS reports.

Nahman will be arraigned Monday.

Police suspect that Nahman was involved with a separate jewelry theft and was attempting to silence Wolf because Wolf is a potential witness in that case. Nahman has been charged with witness intimidation and attempted murder.
