LEWISVILLE, TX — A man is accused of fatally stabbing and beating his 16-month-old son before a neighbor at his Lewisville apartment complex attempted to stop the attack by shooting him in the leg, police said Sunday.

Witnesses reported that a man was stabbing or beating a child about 12:40 p.m. in a courtyard at the Oak Forest Apartments on South State Highway 121 Business near Bellaire Boulevard.

The article goes on to state the following:

A neighbor heard screaming, grabbed a gun and fired three shots, striking the father once in the leg and “effectively ending the assault on the child,” police Captain Jesse Hunter said.

During the attack, the father was yelling “Jesus is coming,” a witness told police.

The toddler had severe injuries, including stab wounds, and was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The incident was “probably the worst in my 20 years … doing this,” Hunter said.
