A San Jose family returned from vacation Wednesday night and discovered that their Husted Avenue home in the Willow Glen neighborhood had been burglarized and that their 357 pistol and shotgun were missing, police said, reports the Mercury News.

The family also found an erratic, meandering 20-page note written by 44-year-old Dustin Hamilton, in which he made threats to "kill people in the city of San Francisco and any law enforcement personnel," according to police.

San Jose police alerted police in San Francisco, and also obtained an arrest warrant for burglary, criminal threats, and firearms possession. Authorities also said Hamilton has active arrest warrants for assault and vandalism in San Francisco.

Police added that Hamilton, a transient who lives in the San Francisco area, specified he would commit a shooting Wednesday, but that did not transpire.
