Winston-Salem Police: Man Shot To Death After Attacking Drug Dealer With Sword

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (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.
