Ex-Marine Fends Off Would-Be Muggers With Pocket Knife, Killing One

Jack Murtha has demanded a full investigation into the "cold-blooded murder."

Thomas Autry, who authorities said will not be charged, had been walking home from his job waiting tables Monday night when four people got out of a car and chased him, Atlanta police detective Danny Stephens said.

One of the attackers had a shotgun and another had a pistol, Stephens said.

The suspects caught up with Autry, who yelled for help and pulled a knife out of his backpack. He kicked the shotgun out of one of the attacker's hands and stabbed both a 17-year-old girl who jumped on him and a man who also attacked him.

The suspects fled in their car but police found them later at a hospital where the girl was pronounced dead. The man stabbed in the incident was in critical condition, Stephens said.

They made the mistake of bringing guns to a knife-fight, which is a mistake if you're dealing with someone who's pretty good with a knife.
