Baltimore, MD - City Police patrol University Parkway on Tuesday evening. It’s an increased effort since a student killed 49 year old Donald Rice, a home intruder and a man with 29 prior convictions for breaking and entering.

Police said one of them used a samurai sword to fend off the would-be burglar.
It’s an alarming wake up call for Johns Hopkins Senior Amy Johnson. “Today kind of made me realize a blessing and a curse that I can feel so safe in my neighborhood but still you have to have that level of awareness.”
That's exactly the message school leaders were trying to get out. “This is the kind of things students of any urban campus need to be paying attention to,” said school spokesman Dennis O’Shea.
