38. Did they miss the warning shots from a 50cal machinegun across their bow?

"The crew aboard the Navy ship sent out repeated warnings, including radio calls, flashing lights, lasers and ultimately warning shots from a 50-caliber machine gun."

"When the boat failed to heed the warnings, the crew was ordered to open fire with the 50-caliber gun."
