    Johns Hopkins student kills burglary suspect with samurai sword

    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    Updated Tuesday, September 15th 2009, 4:50 PM




    BALTIMORE — A Johns Hopkins University student armed with a samurai sword killed a suspected burglar in a garage behind his off-campus home early Tuesday, hours after someone broke in and stole electronics.

    Some shocked neighbors said they heard bloodcurdling screams in an area just blocks from the university. Police held the student, a junior chemistry major who turns 21 on Sunday, for several hours, but no charges were filed by early afternoon, said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

    Around 1:20 a.m., the student heard noises behind the home and noticed a door to the garage was open, Guglielmi said. He grabbed the sword and confronted the intruder, who was crouching beneath a counter.

    The student asked the suspect what he was doing and threatened to call police.
    "When he said that, the suspect lunged at him, kind of forced the kid against the wall, and he struck him with the sword," Guglielmi said.

    The intruder's left hand was nearly severed — Guglielmi described it as "hanging on by a thread" — and the man suffered a severe cut to the upper body. The 49-year-old suspect, whom police described as a habitual offender, died at the scene.

    On Monday, two laptops and a Sony PlayStation were stolen from the student's home, though police were not sure whether the slain suspect was responsible, Guglielmi said.
    There was a pool of blood Tuesday morning in the brick courtyard between the back porch of the home and the garage. The courtyard was strewn with debris, including what looked like broken glass.

    Guglielmi did not know why the student kept a sword. He said he may have had some martial arts training, but was not an expert.
    Police had not yet released the suspect's name because they were having trouble locating his relatives. Guglielmi said he had 29 prior arrests, mostly for burglary and breaking and entering, and had been released Saturday from a Baltimore County jail after serving about a year for auto theft.

    Several nearby residents said the community has experienced a rash of petty crimes in recent months, including home, garage and vehicle break-ins. Many homes have bars on windows and stickers advertising alarm systems.

    Kenny Eaton, 20, a junior political science major at Hopkins who lives nearby, said there was some tension between students and lower-income residents of nearby communities. The private Johns Hopkins is known for its health and science research and has about 4,600 undergraduates on its main campus.

    "You take kids who are paying $50,000 a year (in tuition) and then put them out in a very dangerous city environment, it's almost like a clash of civilizations," he said.

    If the kid was really protecting his property then I hope they press no charges against him.

    I have a pick handle, and a machete.

    Soon as i have the time and inclination, i will be looking into the UK gun license because of threads in OC of people talking about how awesome their guns are. It sounds like a fun hobby.

    Ammo had become very expensive. FYI. I like hobbies that don't cost much money. Like running and weight training

    The go to... the swords...(short and long). If there is a need to retreat the rifle cuts through walls floors, TVs, knickknacks, etc.

    I put the swords in discreet positions mainly for my stupid neighbor's pits. If you need to take care of an issue blades satisfy.

    Now...as far as the part I left quoted...who cares why a non-felon has a sword. Why was that even brought up? Maybe he likes them. Maybe he wanted to be a ninja after graduation. The point is moot.
    The guy made the decison to try and rob somebody and he paid for his mistake with his life...one less tax payer burden.
