Man in body armor arrested after firing assault rifle near Oakland Zoo: police

An Oakland man was arrested after being accused of firing several shots from an assault rifle near the Oakland Zoo. 

Police said they were called to a report of shots fired about 7:45 p.m. on Wednesday.

No injuries were reported but police went to a home on the 3000 block of Broadmoor View and seized at least 20 ghost guns.

They also found ammunition, a Taser and a 3-D printer.

They arrested the man, who they say was wearing body armor at the time, on various firearm-related charges as well as for negligently discharging a gun. 

A bullet casing was found in his driveway. 

Police thanked neighbors for calling in reports of gunfire. 

Last year, Oakland police recovered nearly 1,400 firearms, of which, nearly 25% were ghost guns.
