I tend to agree with the conventional wisdom is that you shouldn’t bring a knife to a gunfight for the simple reason that ranged weapons give you a distinct advantage over someone with a blade outside of contact distance. Once a person with a knife is within touching distance, however, things can get nasty, fast.
Aberdeen police officers were called at 6 a.m. Saturday to a home on Liberty St. A resident told police he woke up to find a man, carrying a pistol in his hand, in his home.
The resident grabbed a knife that was lying nearby and confronted the intruder, who was stabbed during a scuffle during which he fired one round at the resident, police said.
After fleeing the house, the intruder was later captured by the Maryland State Police on Interstate 95 after he was involved in a car accident, police said.
The suspect was identified as Avalon Rosette, of Aberdeen, police said. He was taken to Shock Trauma, where he is listed in stable condition.
