In the Dallas area this week, a 16-month-old boy was being beaten and stabbed by his father while his mother was at work. During the attack, the father was yelling, “Jesus is coming!”
A neighbor heard this, grabbed his gun, and fired three shots, which ended the attack, according to police Captain Jesse Hunter. Although he received maximum medical attention, the child was tragically pronounced dead at the hospital. There had been no prior incidents at the apartment and no calls to Child Protective Services in the past.

According, to Captain Jesse Hunter, this crime was “probably the worst in my 20 years.” Here is a brief news segment with an interview with him:
