CORRECTION:  Sentencing in this case has been scheduled for June 8.


The sentencing of a former Marine accused of firing shots at military-related buildings in the Fall of 2010 is set for Friday.

Police arrested Yonathan Melaku last June for allegedly firing shots at the Pentagon and the Marine Corps Museum in Quantico, as well as other military-related targets.

Prosecutors had released a home video of a masked Melaku during one of the late-night shootings.

The former Marine from Virginia pleaded guilty to the charges in January and agreed to a 25-year prison sentence.
