Jeffrey Musick identifed as attacker killed after charging police with samurai sword

A man wielding a Samurai sword at a college campus in Colorado was shot and killed after allegedly attacking a police officer over the weekend, authorities said.

The coroner’s office said Jeffrey Albert Musick, 38, died after being shot multiple times.

Musick allegedly attacked an officer with the sword around 5:45 a.m. Saturday on the Auraria Campus.

Police said the officer opened fire after being injured by the blade.

The officer nearly had his finger cut off and was rushed to the hospital after the incident. He was released on Sunday.

“His finger was almost severed,” Denver Police Spokesperson Raquel Lopez said.

Lopez said a caller phoned the police station and said, “‘Hey, there’s a guy out there with a sword.’ Anytime you see someone walking around with a sword and swinging it around, you want to take precautions.”

The campus police officer confronted the sword-wielding man in a crosswalk near the front of the student center, Lopez said. The man did not obey orders and swung the sword, nearly lopping the officer’s finger off. The officer then shot the man, Lopez said.
