SAN FRANCISCO—Authorities arrested Jack Dane, 63, of San Francisco after he fired shots from his home on August 28. According to a press release from the San Francisco Police Department, at approximately 6:49 p.m. on August 28, officers from the Northern Station responded to a call of shots being fired near Laguna and Green Streets.

Officers spoke to witnesses who informed them their friend was having a psychotic breakdown and was in the possession of a firearm. They fled the home fearing for their safety, and heard gun shots come from inside the home.

Authorities set-up a perimeter outside the home to apprehend the suspect and were soon contacted by a Dane, who was standing in the doorway where the suspect was last scene. He was brought into custody without incident. After completing a thorough investigation, the Northern Street Crimes Unit, Northern Patrol and the Northern Investigative Team, Dane was booked at the San Francisco County Jail on several gun related charges including shooting at an inhabited dwelling and willfully and negligently discharging a firearm.
