Video - Police Fatally Shoot Rapist

According to MTO News, police officers responded to a "rape in progress" call at a public housing project in East Cleveland on Tuesday, and were forced to fatally shoot the alleged rapist. The suspect had a gun when officers located him and continued to point it at his female victim's head. When the man refused to drop his weapon, officers fired more than a dozen shots, killing him on the scene.

The victim, believed to have been shot and assaulted by the suspect, was transported to a hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
