Police: 80 Guns Found at Cleveland Shelter

Published February 3, 2011

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Police have confiscated 80 firearms of various calibers and 874 boxes of ammunition found at a homeless shelter in Cleveland.

A police report says the items were taken from St. Herman's House of Hospitality last week "in connection with a crisis intervention." Sgt. Sammy Morris says the investigation continues. No other information was available.

City Councilman Joe Cimperman tells WKYC-TV that the weapons included AK-47s and other high-powered firearms. He says it was a "miracle" no one was hurt.

The shelter's Web site says it provides overnight lodging to about 12,000 men each year and offers other social services to those in need.
