Man arrested for shooting out neighbor’s window

A Lebanon man was arrested Tuesday, Aug. 31, after he allegedly shot out a neighbor’s window with a high-powered pellet gun.
According to a Lebanon Police news release, police responded at about 3:47 a.m. to a call that someone had shot through a bedroom window on a house in the 2200 block of Chelsea Way with some type of bullet.
Upon arrival, a patrol sergeant was inspecting the damage to the window when a second shot penetrated the glass near the sergeant’s head, police said.
Additional officers responded to canvas the neighborhood. Projectiles were found inside another residence in the 2200 block of Chelsea Way.
Lebanon Police detectives responded to the location to follow up. Daniel Aaron Brewer was contacted at a nearby residence and interviewed regarding the incident. Evidence of this crime was ultimately discovered in an on-scene investigation.
Brewer admitted to shooting two rounds with a high-powered pellet gun through his neighbor’s window. He was taken into custody without incident on four counts of first-degree attempted assault, second-degree assault, two counts of unlawful use of a weapon, four counts of reckless endangering, and three counts of menacing. He was lodged, pending arraignment, at Linn County Jail.
In-house history revealed prior contacts with Brewer for burglary, narcotics, and multiple other harassment-related calls.
