57 firearms recovered after shots reported


San Francisco police Tuesday¬†said they arrested a man in San Francisco’s Cow Hollow area after a report of shots fired led to the discovery of a substantial cache of firearms in his home.

Jack Dane, 63, was arrested on Aug. 28, after police received calls shortly before 7 p.m. reporting shots fired in the area of Laguna and Green streets.

A witness told responding officers that they had fled a home in the area because a friend was having a psychotic breakdown and was armed. As the witness fled the home, they said they heard several shots from inside the home.

Police surrounded the house and detained a man found standing in the doorway, who was later found to be Dane.

A search of the house by police uncovered 57 firearms including 17 semi-automatic rifles, machine guns and 40 handguns.

Dane was arrested on suspicion of gun related charges including shooting at an inhabited dwelling and willfully and negligently discharging a firearm.

Police are asking anyone with information in this case to call the SFPD Anonymous Tip Line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and start the message with SFPD.
