A naked man was shot and killed by Miami police at 2 p.m. on Saturday after he was found eating the face of a victim on the MacArthur Causeway, according to The Miami Herald.
Witnesses said a woman flagged down police after she saw the two men fighting. The unidentified officer who arrived on the scene ordered the attacker to stop chewing on his victim’s face, but was forced to shoot when the attacker would not stop. The attacker continued eating the other man’s face, and the officer shot him several more times, ultimately killing him.
Said Javier Ortiz, spokesman for Miami police’s Fraternal Order of Police, “Based on the information provided, our Miami police officer is a hero and saved a life.”
Sergeant Altarr Williams, supervisor of Miami police’s Homicide Unit told the Herald someone need not be armed to be considered dangerous enough to make the use of force necessary. “There are other ways to injure people,” Williams said. “Some people know martial arts. Others are very strong and can kill you with their hands.”
Meanwhile, It looks like the zombie apocalypse we’ve all been worrying about is finally here.
