The man who police said opened fire on a seemingly-random target was ordered to stand trial Tuesday.

Clayton Ruben Addleman, 24, was ordered to stand trial on the 12 counts against him, said Ricardo Santiago, Public Information Officer for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Addleman was charged with one count of attempted, willful, deliberate and premeditated murder, prosecutors previously said.

Prosecutors also brought before Addleman one count of first degree robbery, two counts of first degree residential robbery, one count of first degree burglary, one count of grand theft of an automobile, one count of grand theft of personal property, one count of identity theft, one count of forgery relating to identity theft, one count of possession of a firearm by a felon, one count of possession of ammunition and one count of petty theft.

Addleman pleaded not guilty to the charges January 13.

Most of the crimes related to the charges were committed the day of his arrest.

Addleman pulled up to his target in a Vons parking lot, 431 E. Arrow Hwy. December 27, yelled something inaudible to him and then fired three rounds in the nighttime attack, completely missing his target, police said.

Using surveillance footage, police identified Addleman and later located him near a Chase Bank in Azusa December 29. Investigators recovered evidence from the car that linked him to the shooting and linked him to a vehicle burglary, police said.

Addleman is a convicted felon and is not allowed to possess firearms, police said.

Addleman will be arraigned in Department N of the Pomona Courthouse.
