Residents beat, then shoot, Dallas rape suspect | Chron.com - Houston ChronicleWhat is there to investigate?DALLAS — A man accused of raping a woman at knifepoint in a Dallas apartment was beaten by an angry group of people and shot at least twice, authorities said.
The 26-year-old man, who was not identified, underwent surgery Friday after being hit with a baseball bat and shot, apparently once in the head, according to The Dallas Morning News. Authorities did not immediately know the suspect's condition on Saturday.
The victim, who did not know the suspect, was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital. Her condition was not immediately known.
The newspaper reported that only one woman at the apartment was willing to talk about what happened.
"He got what he deserved," Sharon Ivy said. "You don't go into (a) house ... do things to (a) momma and think it's all right. That was just a community watch."
Police said the man forced his way into the unlocked apartment of a 22-year-old woman around noon. Five children were in the apartment, some of whom belonged to her.
Authorities said he sexually assaulted the woman, and some of the children fled. After he laid down the knife and started getting dressed, the woman ran outside to tell her boyfriend.
The boyfriend and some others confronted the suspect in the apartment, and a fight began. Police said the fight led out into the parking lot, with an unknown number of people taking part.
The suspect in the rape eventually broke free and ran into another apartment, where he was shot.
Authorities were investigating the melee that followed the alleged assault.

Good for them!!! He got what was coming to him.
I think if someone came running into my apartment, I'd be afraid for my life and shoot, too.

Glad the rapist got his - wish it had been from the victim before the rape...
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
Be interesting to see if they go after the those that attacked the rapist and the shooter for vigilantiasm...hope not.
Sounds like he's pretty lucky to me. If it were my GF or wife I would have unloaded on him. Then reloaded and unloaded again.
Too bad said rapist didn't die from his wounds.
a rapist runs into someone's place and gets shot in the head?
sounds like a good shoot to me...
This just in...

The person who wrote that article knows who the real victim is. Doubt that anyone will be charged with roughing up the rapist.
