Hopkins student kills intruder with samurai sword, police say


Off-campus house was burglarized Monday; suspect recently freed from county jail


A Johns Hopkins University student armed with a samurai sword killed a man who broke into the garage of his off-campus residence early Tuesday, a Baltimore police spokesman said.


According to preliminary reports, a resident of the 300 block of E. University Parkway called police about a suspicious person, department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. An off-duty officer responded about 1:20 a.m. to the area with university security, according to Guglielmi. They heard shouts and screams from a neighboring house and found the suspected burglar suffering from a nearly severed hand and laceration to his upper body, he said.


The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. Based on the initial investigation, the student killed the man with only one strike of the sword, according to Guglielmi. The medical examiner will make the final determination, he said.


The student told police that he heard a commotion in the house and went downstairs armed with the sword, Guglielmi said. He saw the side door to the garage had been pried open and found a man inside, who lunged at the student. There was no indication that the suspected burglar was armed, however, according to Guglielmi.


Burglars had already stolen two laptops and a S0NY Pl@yst@tion from the student's home Monday, Guglielmi said.


Dennis O'Shea, a spokesman for Johns Hopkins, said all four residents of the house are undergraduate students at the university. Police had released three of the roommates by Tuesday afternoon. The student who wielded the sword remained in custody while investigators worked to corroborate his story with evidence and witness statements. Police have not released the name of the residents, but department sources identified the detained student as John Pontolillo, 20, of Wall, N.J.


The city state's attorney's office will determine whether to press charges, Guglielmi said." (for Ninjering without a permit?)

I had read this earlier and really enjoyed the part about the horriffic screams heard by the neighbors.


Good riddance. Give the kid a tax credit for saving us a bunch of money and more victims of the ex scumbag.


Instead of that, depending on what state he is in, he is likely to have to spend $20,000 defending himself against a manslaughter charge.

The young dude is in luck.

Maryland Municipal Code sec 152.87n par. 5 allows for strict interpretation of the subsequent code of the bushido.

Since he may claim that he was defending the castle of his master ,and thus the honor of any virtuous maidens held within; he is exempt from punishment by the shogun of the emperor.

But if it is found his deed of bravery was not admirable.... well then, it's seppuku for the dude.:D
