Rapist Killed with Own Gun

A 26-year-old man was shot dead with his own gun after he sexually assaulted a woman at school construction site in the Bywater Thursday evening, New Orleans police said. The shooter, a man who was not identified, disarmed the woman’s attacker and opened fire around 9:30 p.m., police said early Friday.

The man who was killed approached the couple as they walked along the 3800 block of North Rampart Street at Alvar Street outside the old Frederick Douglass High School. The man brandished a gun and demanded the pair walk to a building undergoing renovation, NOPD said.

The assailant began assaulting the woman, NOPD said, and the other man was able to get ahold of the weapon.

Detectives interviewed the shooter and the woman who was assaulted and made no arrests. The case will be turned over to prosecutors for review.
