Cory Allen Flenory, 27, is facing one count each of mayhem and vandalism over $400, and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
If convicted as charged, Flenory faces multiple life terms in state prison.
The case against Flenory includes an allegation he used the BB gun as a deadly weapon, and that he has a 2005 felony conviction in Tulare for carjacking, robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
The felony complaint also includes one count of injuring a spouse for an unrelated incident on May 5, which also involved a BB gun.
On May 17, Flenory shot one of two victims in the eye after they attempted to confront him over almost colliding with his vehicle at a Walmart parking lot, the prosecutor said. The victim suffered permanent damage to her eye.
The defendant was combative upon arrest and kicked out the rear passenger window of a sheriff’s patrol car, said Deputy District Attorney Guy Shirley in a statement.
Bail was set at $1,275,000 at a hearing today in Department S of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, San Fernando Branch. Arraignment was continued to June 10.
The case is being investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Santa Clarita Valley Station.
