A San Diego-based sailor is facing court-martial for allegedly pointing an unloaded gun at a fellow sailor and pulling the trigger.
Assigned to Beachmaster Unit 1, Gunner’s Mate Seaman Apprentice Khali K. Lane, 20, was arraigned last month at Naval Base San Diego, according to court records.
Military prosecutors charged her with simple assault with an unloaded firearm, reckless endangerment, provoking speeches or gestures and violation or failure to obey a lawful general order or regulation.
Authorities accuse her of “wrongfully pointing a firearm” at an unnamed seaman “and pulling the trigger” on Oct. 19 in or near Coronado, according to her charge sheets.
The Navy has released only minimal details about the alleged incident and Lane’s attorney did not respond to requests for comment made through a command spokesman.
Lane also did not respond to direct requests for comment from Navy Times.
The Florida native enlisted in August of 2017 and arrived at Beachmaster Unit 1 in July, her first assignment out of school, according to service records.
The Navy has not announced a trial date.
