Several high-power rifles, shotguns, handguns and a large cache of munitions were found by police Wednesday evening in a high-rise apartment in Hollywood.

Officers were dispatched to the scene of a possible mental illness call regarding a man living on the 18th floor of an apartment building on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Gordon Street who was pointing a gun at a park below his apartment, CBS Los Angeles reported.

Braxton Johnson, 24, was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats. Bail was set at $500,000.

Investigators obtained a search warrant for Johnson’s residence, leading to the discovery of the weapons.

Police said they traced Johnson’s criminal history to at least one other state, where an additional investigation was in its ongoing stages as well. The other state or states were not disclosed.
