Police say NC man shot to death after sword attack

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) — Winston-Salem police say a 67-year-old man has been shot to death after he attacked a man with a sword.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported that 56-year-old James Samuels was arrested Wednesday and charged with possession of a gun by a convicted felon and the sale and delivery of marijuana.

But police say Samuels will not be charged with killing Anthony Alphonzo McArthur because Samuels was acting in self-defense.

Winston-Salem police say McArthur had attacked Samuels with an 18-inch sword because he was unhappy with the amount of marijuana he purchased from Samuels.

It was not clear if Samuels has an attorney.
