SAN FRANCISCO — Federal prosecutors have filed illegal ammunition-possession charges against a man who was identified as having returned fire at an armed attacker outside of a liquor store, court records show.

Gregory Mack, of San Francisco, was charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition, which carries a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The criminal complaint says police served a search warrant at Mack’s residence a week after Mack was shot at, and found two guns, along with a “drum” style magazine, designed to hold extra bullets.

The criminal complaint alleges that in April 2020, Mack bumped into an alleged Northern California gang member, whom the complaint describes as a “rival” of Mack, outside of Rubins Market in San Francisco. The man fired at Mack, who took cover and returned fire, according to federal authorities.

One person — an innocent bystander — was struck in the leg by a bullet fired by the other man, authorities said.

A federal judge ordered Mack released from jail last week. In a failed motion to keep him in custody, federal prosecutors blamed Mack for escalating the conflict.
