Three people accused of a spate of drive-by shootings in Wodonga were hunting a "drug stand-over man" they feared would rob, assault or kidnap them, a court has heard.
Tory Rose McGuire, 28, Rachael Louise Charubin, 43, and Jamie Leigh Evans, 29, drove around Wodonga on Saturday and Sunday shooting at houses they believed could have been linked to the man.
Both women appeared before Wodonga Magistrates Court on Friday and were granted bail.
Evans appeared in custody before magistrate Ian Watkins and did not make an application for bail.
His matter was adjourned to the same court on October 6.
Police prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Geoff Nicholls told the court the trio were motivated by threats made towards them and Evans was the one who fired single shots into homes in Georgina Street, Wornes Drive and Gilbert Street.
McGuire drove the car to the three different addresses while Charubin was in the passenger seat and Evans directed them from the back seat.
Leading Senior Constable Nicholls said they targeted Wornes Drive first.
"Evans fired one gun shot into the lounge room window, it isn't believed anyone was at home at the time," he said.
"The 40-year-old female resident returned home at midnight to find the gunshot through the window.
"On September 20 at around 1.50am they drove into Gilbert Street where they thought they saw a vehicle that could have been connected to the man they were looking for.

CCTV footage captured the car drive away from the scene.
At around 4.45am the three then drove to West Wodonga to Georgina Street where they stopped for just a few seconds.
"Evans walks up to the front yard and fired one gun shot into the front bedroom," Leading Senior Constable Nicholls said. The court heard McGuire took the number plates off the car but police located the vehicle the next day.
Police are also investigating another shooting into a home in Quirk Street, Wodonga on the same night.
McGuire and Charubin are charged with three counts of reckless conduct endangering life.
McGuire is also charged with possession of MDMA and cannabis.
Evans is charged with four counts of reckless conduct endangering life, four counts of discharging a firearm in a populous place and committing an indictable offence while on bail.
Evans was arrested trying to cross the border into NSW and was extradited to Victoria on Friday afternoon.
The court heard he had not made any admissions to the charges.
