Jacksonville, FL (WTLV) - Police said a man wielding a sword in Mandarin Friday night was shot and killed by a homeowner.
Police were called to the Solano Grove Condominiums near the intersection of Sunbeam Road and San Jose Boulevard shortly before midnight Friday night.
Neighbors had called police because they had seen a man walking around with a sword, according to Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Homicide Sargent Lonnie Mills.
The man with the sword tried to enter someone's home and that person shot him.
Mills said that police have been called to the area for that resident before and that he is known to have mental problems.
Right now the shooting appears to be justified, Mills said.
Police have not released the identity of the man who was shot or the homeowner who killed him.
