WAUKESHA COUNTY (CBS 58) – Authorities are now identifying the man who shot at Brookfield resident Scott Luecht as Prentiss Adams.

Adams is facing several charges for his involvement in the crime in November. Court documents show he faces charges of attempted first degree intentional homicide (use of a dangerous weapon), possession of a firearm by an adjudicated delinquent, burglary of a building or dwelling as party to a crime, two counts of misdemeanor theft and armed robbery with threat of force.

Authorities say Adams was with Vaccaro and Lowrey in Luecht's neighborhood on November 10.

According to the criminal complaint, when asked why he shot at Luecht, Adams told a confidential informant, "To be honest, I shot at him because I was trying to prove to y'all that I'm really with that [expletive],"

WAUKESHA COUNTY (CBS 58) – A man and woman are charged with a crime spree in Waukesha County.

Police say they hit several homes within less than mile of each other in November of last year.

Two of the victims actually caught the thieves in the act and were put in life-threatening situations.

Brookfield resident Scott Luecht says he was leaving his home on Sierra Drive to go to work around 4:30 a.m. when he saw someone rummaging through his neighbor's vehicle.

"One of them said sir get back in the house,” Luecht said. “I turned and started to go back in and out of the corner of my eye I saw a flash and heard a pop and glass breaking and that's when I realized someone had taken a shot at me."

That bullet narrowly missed his head and shattered a porch light.

 "For about three weeks after that every time I would go out the front door I would peek out the front window first to see what's going on,” Luecht said.

Police say one of  those thieves is Lauren Lowrey, who is in police custody. 

The man is Armon Vaccaro, who has a warrant out for his arrest.

"I want them to be in prison for a very long time,” Luecht said.

Leucht wasn't the only target the morning of November 10th.

Another home and vehicle were ransacked nearby on Hunter's Run.

"I was very concerned seeing as how they're neighbors and i felt sorry for them,” Sandra Hogan said.

Hogan woke up that same morning in Oconomowoc to news her neighbor caught two men in her garage looking through her vehicle.

One of the men even pointed a gun at her before running away.

"That would be very scary,” Hogan said.

Months later, Luecht still lives in fear in his own home.

"I’m kind of leery of retaliation,” Luecht said.

Vaccaro and Lowrey were found in a stolen car in the Wisconsin Dells three days after the burglary spree.

Police say they had two stolen guns and some of the items taken in the burglaries.
