District Attorney Brooke Jenkins Announces Thor Kill Convicted For Unlawful Possession of Vast Quantities of Ammunition

Thor Kill prohibited from ever owning firearms or ammunition following conviction for unlawful possession of thousands of rounds of live ammunition and explosives. 

San Francisco, CA – Today, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins announced that her office secured a conviction of Thor Kill (45) after trial by jury.  Ms. Kill was convicted of felony possession of ammunition by a prohibited person (PC 30305(a)(1)).  She was prohibited from possessing ammunition by a 2012 misdemeanor assault conviction.  

Ms. Kill was sentenced to two years State Prison but credited with time served as she has been in custody since her arrest on April 27, 2021.  She is ordered to report to Adult Probation Department for Parole/Post Release Community Supervision not to exceed four years.  She is also prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition for the rest of her life and was ordered to forfeit all ammunition, ammunition components, and firearms (including all firearm precursor parts) seized by SFPD and ATF while executing the search warrant that led to her arrest on April 27, 2021. 

“This case reminds us just how much we can protect public safety by working together,” said District Attorney Brooke Jenkins.  “The successful operation in this case took vast quantities of ammunition and explosives off the streets making our community safer.”

San Francisco Police Department officers and special agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives executed a search warrant on Ms. Kill’s residence and a storage unit rented to her on the 1400 block of Folsom Street.  Agents discovered and seized multiple crates and boxes containing thousands of rounds of live ammunition, 87 firearm magazines, 125 pounds of explosive powder, tens of thousands of components used to make ammunition (including bags of bullets, tens of thousands of primers, and thousands of cartridge casings), and ammunition manufacturing equipment.  On Kill’s YouTube and Instagram pages, SFPD found multiple posts of equipment used to manufacture ammunition. 

The case against Ms. Kill was successfully prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Friedemann Zhong with assistance from the Writs and Appeals Unit, District Attorney Investigator Liz Burson-Thomas, paralegals Reg Clay and Chloe Mosqueda and IT support from Leland Chan.  Prosecutors were able to develop a strong case against Ms. Kill based on the outstanding investigative work performed by the San Francisco Police Department’s Crime Gun Investigations Center.

“I am so grateful to the jury for their service and for the care they took in reaching this decision” said Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Friedemann Zhong.  “Their verdict holds Ms. Kill accountable for actions that put the public’s safety at risk.”
