Man who made threats to kill people in SF taken into custody

A man who allegedly stole firearms from a home in San Jose and made threats to kill people in San Francisco and law enforcement officers has been taken into custody by San Francisco police.

Duston Hamilton, 44, was taken into custody without incident near the Caltrain station at 4th and King streets after police were tipped by community members, according to San Francisco police. He had two firearms in his possession, police said.

Hamilton was reported as wanted after officers responded at 10:14 p.m. Wednesday to a burglary report in the 1600 block of Husted Avenue. He allegedly left a threatening note at the scene.

After learning of the threat, San Jose police immediately notified their counterparts in San Francisco, and both police departments began looking for Hamilton.

Hamilton is expected to be booked into San Francisco jail. He has a felony arrest warrant issued out of San Jose and two outstanding felony warrants out of San Francisco for charges of assault and vandalism.

Hamilton is known to frequent the San Francisco area and San Francisco police described him Thursday as armed and dangerous.
