It Causes His Arrest for Assault with a Deadly Weapon.

San Francisco Chronicle, November 9, 1891

Hugh Holland has a new gun, and to steady his nerves for a test of its accuracy he nearly incapacitated himself with liquor.

He found his way to Bernal Heights yesterday and began firing indiscriminately. Officers Shannon and Morrow made their way up the hill and encountered Holland, who was trying to make a pot shot at a sparrow. They told him he was under arrest, but he pointed the gun at Shannon.

Morrow, by a strategic move, got behind Holland and overpowered him. He was charged at the Seventeenth-street station with discharging firearms and assault with a deadly weapon.
