The case against Flenory also includes the allegation that 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, according to Guy Shirley, deputy district attorney.
The felony complaint also includes one count of injuring a spouse for an unrelated May 5 incident also involving 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 Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station patrol car, Shirley added.
If convicted as charged, Flenory faces multiple life terms in state prison, officials said.
He’s being held at Men’s Central Jail in lieu of $1.275 million bail, according to Sheriff’s Station records.
