…after PlayStation and laptops stolen.

From Gizmodo:

Holy crap. Detectives are still interviewing a John Hopkins University student who fatally lacerated the upper body of a man breaking into his off-campus residence overnight. The suspect also suffered a nearly-severed hand, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The house is home to four undergrads who had already had a Sony PlayStation and two laptops stolen earlier on Monday.
And when one of the students heard noises at about 1am, he went to downstairs to investigate armed with the sword. He saw that the side door to their garage had been pried open, and inside, was lunged at by the suspect.

Wow… don’t mess with gamers, huh? Not sure what I would have done, but killing the intruder would have been the LAST option (if my or loved one’s life were in danger).

What would you do in this situation?
