That Was Florida...Here's How The-Land-Of-Mary's Handles Things...

"A man walking home from work in southwest Baltimore County fought off two robbers – stabbing and killing one with the attacker’s own knife, police said.

The attack happened at about 10 p.m. Sunday on Annapolis Road near the I-895 overpass in the police department’s Wilkens Precinct.

The victim, who has not been identified, struggled with the robbers and was able to stab one of the assailants with the attacker's own knife, police said. One of the robbers drove the injured man to St. Agnes Hospital where he died a short time later, according to police. He has been identified as Calvin Stewart, 19, of Severn.

“The victim was defending himself,” said Baltimore County police spokesman Cpl. Mike Hill. “In the middle of the struggle, all of a sudden, the attackers just started running.”

The county has had seven homicides this year. It’s unclear whether police will add this killing to their homicide tally, because it appears to be in self-defense, Hill said. The Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office will ultimately decide what charges will result from the incident."

You read it correctly, grasshopper.

Things are unclear until the magnificent attorney's office issues its edict.

Might be touch and go. Sure he was fighting for his life, but dammitall the mugee went and killed the mugger. Could have at least tried talking to him first.
