NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans police say a man was shot to death with the gun he used to sexually assault a woman.
Police said it happened Thursday night. It began when a 26-year-old man approached another man and a woman who were walking in the city's Bywater neighborhood. The 26-year-old pulled a gun and forced the two to walk to the yard of a nearby school building that was being renovated. Then, the gunman began to sexually assault the woman. However, the other man was able to disarm the assailant and shoot him.
The assailant's name has not been released.
Police interviewed the woman and the man who fired the fatal shot. No charges were filed. The case will be reviewed by prosecutors.
