Issue 9 is the ninth issue of volume 1 of the Grimm comics series and the fourth issue of Volume 2: Bloodlines. It was published in January 2014 by Dynamite Comics and distributed on January 15, 2014 by Diamond.
Short synopsis: The Portland Police Department finds itself in disarray as a mysterious, hulking Wesen starts picking off cops one by one in its frantic search for the "Grimm." With his fellow officers caught in the crossfire, Nick must throw himself headfirst into danger if he has any hope to stop the monster before it claims another colleague's life.
A false-alarm noise complaint baits two Portland police officers into the trap of hired terrorist Akiyama, a Hadosheru. Akiyama mauls Officer Adams and leaves Officer McHenry unconscious, so Captain Renard assigns the homicide to Nick and Hank.
The detectives learn that McHenry saw the Wesen hovering with Adams in two pieces, but they think McHenry (who is on a hospital bed) is too drugged to recall things correctly. Meanwhile, Akiyama baits and kills a second police via false-alarm domestic dispute. Renard connects the dots; the terrorist isn't after the Portland Police Bureau, he's after Nick.
Nick arrives home around 3 a.m. to wake Juliette and has her go over to Monroe's house as protective custody. Then the two detectives flee just in time to save Wu and Franco from the terrorist. Nick soon learns Akiyama can withstand practically any blow, including bullets and a moving car. Akiyama beats Nick up and wanders away, bored with the fight.
Back at the trailer, Nick and Hank learn how to kill a Hadosheru-- by using a naginata (なぎなた). Together, they take Akiyama on and bring him down.
Upon arriving home, however, Nick is tazed to unconsciousness by Silvio Jenkins.
