Hamilton was taken into custody after burglarizing his parents' home on Tuesday in San Jose and stole several guns. Hamilton left behind the manifesto and said he hated the San Francisco police, KGO-TV reported. The outlet said Hamilton had two outstanding warrants for assault and vandalism, in addition to three additional warrants related to Tuesday's crime.

On Wednesday, police issued a warning to local Bay Area residents after the note was found and asked the public's help in finding Hamilton. At the time, authorities said he was considered to be armed and dangerous.
