KENT, Wash. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to assault in an accidental theater shooting has been sentenced to a year of work release.

KOMO-TV reports Dane E. Gallion drank beer and took anti-anxiety medication before going to see “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” in January.

Police say Gallion brought a gun to the theater because he feared the movie’s content might spark a shooting.

A 40-year-old woman’s clavicle was shattered when she was shot in the shoulder.

KIRO-TV reported family members said during sentencing Friday that Gallion has a family to support.

He was also ordered to pay medical costs and lost work.
