LEBANON, Ore. – An officer was nearly struck by a bullet coming through a window in a Lebanon shooting Tuesday morning.
Police said it started just before 4 a.m. on the 2200 block of Chelsea Way. A caller reported that someone had shot at their bedroom window.
A patrol sergeant arrived to the scene and was getting a look at the damage when a second shot came through the glass near the officer’s head.
Additional officers arrived to canvas the neighborhood. Projectiles were reportedly found inside a home on the block.
Detectives contacted Daniel Brewer at a nearby home and interviewed him. Evidence of the crime was reportedly found, and Brewer admitted to shooting two rounds using a high-powered pellet gun through his neighbor’s window, police said.
He was taken into custody for four counts of first-degree assault, second-degree assault, two counts of unlawful use of a weapon, four counts of reckless endangering, and three counts of menacing.
The department has contacted Brewer in the past in connection with cases dealing with burglary, drugs, and harassment.
