Police Shoot Rape Suspect

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ A rape suspect was shot and wounded by
police after he was lured back to the crime scene by the alleged victim's boyfriend.

The unidentified man was shot in the leg after he crashed a car and began to run in a brief pre-dawn chase. Authorities say he disobeyed orders to stop and show his hands, instead reaching toward his waistband before being shot.

He was listed in serious condition at Shands hospital.

Police were called to a home yesterday morning after the 29-year-old woman reported being raped by an acquaintance.
