SAN DIEGO — A man who fired a pellet gun at Navy SEAL instructors and trainees conducting a nighttime training exercise near Liberty Station was sentenced Thursday to a year in jail.
Scott Douglass Weaver, 48, pleaded guilty last month to making an attempted threat on a witness and brandishing a replica firearm.
Because of credit for time already served, Weaver will spend about 80 more days in local custody before being released, authorities said.
Dispatchers received a report of a man shooting at Navy officers shortly before 10:45 p.m. on July 23 in the 2500 block of Laning Road and Weaver was arrested. No military personnel were injured, according to the Navy.
Police did not say if Weaver had a motive for firing at the SEALs or if he was even aware of who he was shooting at.
