Francisco Sanchez had told KGO it was an accident and he found the gun wrapped in a t-shirt.
UPDATE — 7/8, 7:16 p.m. ET: CNN’s Kyung Lah reported tonight that Sanchez obtained the government-issued gun when he broke into a car belonging to a law enforcement officer. The officer reportedly worked for the Bureau of Land Management, who said that the weapon was stolen on June 27 while the officer was attending to business in San Francisco.
