YULEE, Fla. – A Yulee man who was arrested after investigators said a bullet from his gun struck the home of a family of four faces up to 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to a federal firearm offense, according to a release from the Department of Justice.
Shawn Andrew Wilson, 44, pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. His sentencing date was not immediately set.
