    A sniper expert from the SWAT team tracked down a pair of men suspected of shooting a .22-caliber pellet gun at paragliders over the weekend, according to reports.

    The men, Alex Attard (left), 39, of Daly City, and Edward Amatori (right), 50, of San Francisco, were charged with felonies Monday in the "dangerous prank" which occurred Saturday near Mussel Beach in Daly City, the San Francisco Examiner reported.

    Paragliders were sailing around in the air without a care when four to five gunshots rang out, the newspaper reported. Nobody was hurt, but the paragliders called police, where they noticed one of the suspects standing on a balcony of a nearby home.

    Bail is set at $25,000 each, and the suspects will appear in court again on Jan. 23.
