DALY CITY, Calif. (AP) – Two men have pleaded not guilty to charges they shot at paragliders in the San Francisco Bay area with a high-caliber pellet gun.
Thirty-eight-year-old Alex Attard and 49-year-old Edward Amatori were arraigned Monday on charges of felony assault with a deadly weapon.
Authorities say Attard and Amatori shot at paragliders who were getting ready to take off at Mussel Rock in Daly City on Saturday afternoon. The paragliders reported hearing one shot pass over their heads and seeing another hit the ground near them.
According to authorities, officers who arrived at the scene found Attard and Amatori in nearby brush shooting a .22 caliber pellet gun.
