A man who was shot and killed after wielding two samurai swords at the Church of Scientology's Celebrity Centre in Hollywood was from out of state and had recently purchased the swords, coroner's investigators said today.

Police detained the security guard who shot the man for questioning but said a surveillance tape backed his claim that he fired his semiautomatic handgun to protect himself and two colleagues.
