A 26-year-old man was convicted yesterday of shooting at a man in Glendora and breaking into a home in San Marino in 2015, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

The jury deliberated for a day before finding Clayton Ruben Addleman (dob 7/4/91) of Glendora guilty of 13 counts in case KA111467: three counts of first-degree burglary, person present, and one count each of attempted murder, first-degree residential robbery, grand theft of an automobile, grand theft of personal property, identity theft, forgery relating to identity theft, assault with a firearm, possession of a firearm by a felon, unlawful possession of ammunition and petty theft.

Jurors also found true special allegations that the defendant was armed with a firearm and personally and intentionally discharged a firearm during the commission of the crimes.

Addleman is scheduled to be sentenced August 3 in Department T of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Pomona Branch. The defendant faces a possible maximum sentence of 52 years to life in prison.

Deputy District Attorney Vanessa Robles, who prosecuted the case, said on Dec. 27, 2015, officers responded to a shooting call in Glendora. When authorities arrived, they encountered a man who said he had been shot at by an unknown motorist, according to the prosecutor.

During the investigation, law enforcement believed Addleman may have been the suspected shooter, the prosecutor added. Two days later, police located the defendant and took him into custody.

When police searched Addleman’s car, they discovered ammunition, checks and identification cards that did not belong to the defendant, according to the prosecutor.

As investigators continued to examine Addleman’s crimes, they determined the defendant also was involved in a residential robbery in the city of San Marino, the prosecutor said. On Dec. 29, 2015, Addleman armed himself with a gun, broke into the San Marino home while the residents were inside and then attempted to steal the victims’ vehicle before ultimately fleeing the scene, according to the prosecutor.

The case was investigated by the Glendora and San Marino police departments and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
