Plausible Zombie Attack Reported in Miami, Fl

The Zombie Apocalypse is quite possibly legitimately upon us. In Miami, Florida a naked man attacked another man by attempting to eat his face. The suspected “Zombie” is dead and his victim is in the hospital.

5.28.12 UPDATE: According to a CBS Miami article new gruesome details have emerged about the assault:

“Armando Aguilar, who heads the local chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police, said he has spoken with the officer who responded. Aguilar said the officer saw what the man was doing, and ordered him to stop. He said the man growled at the officer, and then returned to his meal.

Aguilar said the man ate his victim’s nose and eyeballs.

The officer then used his service weapon and shot the man, Aguilar said, but the gunshot had no effect.

Other sources confirmed that the man refused to obey, and continued his attack. Aguilar said the officer had no choice but to keep shooting until the attacker was dead.

Investigators sharing limited details about the confrontation, saying only that the two men were fighting and the officers felt they had no choice but to take deadly force.”

“With the attacker dead, lying nude on the pavement, officers and paramedics were able to get to his victim and rush him to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Police sources say the man had virtually no face and was unrecognizable.

Police have shared no information about his identity or condition.”

According to the Miami Harold the man took several shots before being taken out:
“The officer, who has not been identified, approached and saw that the naked man was actually chewing the other man’s head, according to witnesses. The officer ordered the naked man to back away, and when he continued the assault, the officer shot him. The attacker continued to eat the man, despite being shot, forcing the officer to continue firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.”

In an earlier article today, we at ZZN warned that this might be happening sooner than later. We only wish we had been wrong.

Though this is an unfortunate story and details are scarce, we are happy to report that, as of the time of this article, the victim IS alive thanks to the heroics of the officer.

A man was shot dead in a police-involved shooting on the MacArthur causeway at about 2 p.m. Saturday. The body lay on the pedestrian walkway as Miami police investigated.

The officer involved, the attacker and the victim have yet to be identified. More on this story as it develops.

UPDATE:This statement was taken from from news:

“I was a witness to this police shooting. I stopped a city of Miami Police officer and informed him that a homeless man was killing another person by biting and ripping his face to death. The police officer confronted the aggressor and he was like a rabid dog and confronted the officer. then the officer shot the person 4 times. This was an incredible horrific experience and will think about moving my family out of Miami. I lived my whole life in New York and never experienced something this crazy. It was something out of walking dead one person eating another person piece by piece.”

The Huffington Post offered the following video from local media. We ask, what threat could a naked man pose that a shot to a leg would not alleviate?

ZZN continuing to ask the tough questions!

    Watch this. The most realistic zombie movie. That’s why it’s only 3 min lol

  2. i think that it is goin to happen one day. cause look we r already gettin the first signs of it. start making a cure now. or just have alot of bullets. cause ur right jd i would not have to balls to try to beat up a zombie if i didnt have a gun i would do two things shit my pants an run lol. but on the other hand i got a gun they better shit an run.

    In reference to the question “what threat could a naked man pose that a shot to a leg would not alleviate?” to armchair quarterback this, the officer might not have necessarily used deadly force in response to the threat posed to him from the man. Rather he used deadly force to protect the other man being attacked. Even though the suspect was not armed, he was still using deadly force on another person, thereby justifying the deadly force used by the officer. One of the seven commonly accepted justifications for deadly force is self defense/defense of others. Another is to protect from serious offenses against another. There is a concept accepted by many courts known as the “deadly force triangle” meaning that if all three components (capability, oppurtunity, and intent) are met, deadly force can be reasonably justified. The oppurtunity in this case is the situation the officer was in. The capability was the man’s teeth chewing on another man’s face. The intent was, well, plainly obvious. He was EATING another man. As far as shots to the leg go, that is pure Hollywood and totally disconnected from the reality of a deadly force situation. LEO’s and military members and anyone who has been to a self-defense shooting class is taught to shoot for center mass. It presents the largest target, and in a situation where adrenaline is coursing through your veins, shooting for a limb, even for a trained marksman, is extremely difficult. Besides, the leg contains the femoral artery, and leg shots often wind up more fatal than chest wounds. The officer responded exactly as he should have, and his actions quite possibly saved a life. Bravo Zulu, officer!

  4. I dont know what is sicker the zombie that eats the guys face or the zombie witnessess that watch it happen and take no action. If i was there I would have really been a hero and not let one guy eat another guys full face. wtf is wrong with society they would rather stand and watch someone almost die by having their face eaten and take pictures then actually have some balls and do anything. In my opinion the witnesses should all be charged with watching a murder almost happen since they didnt do anything to stop it. Its our job as Humans to protect each other the cops job is to come after the fact and when no one can stop or has a chance to stop the crime. Hmm could it be the oil from the spill that is starting to affect the east coast? I mean after all birds are dive bombing to their deaths and fish are beaching themselves and dying If you think about it its almost like the zombie affect has already been happening to the animals that live in the worst oil disaster in history.

    • nothing says:

      JD you are so ridiculous. you say that now. but if you saw a man literally eating another mans face and he was growling i would be willing to bet my life that you wouldn’t have done anything. you think you would have been the big hero that beat up a zombie? you weren’t there and you clearly have no idea how you would react in that situation. what you just said is outrageous. the witnesses were probably so shocked and scared that they didn’t know what to do at the time. sure it’s easy for you to say that you would have jumped in. but in reality if you were there you would have done the same thing. watched in horror, not knowing how this could be happening. those poor witnesses have to live the rest of their lives with what they just saw. i hope you realize how much of a jackass you are.

    • Scott Kennelly says:

      Actually, nothing says, YOU are an idiot. To think it is acceptable to not try to help someone, because an attacker is acting in a scary manner is ridiculous! There are people who have attacked aligators, who are eating their dog or a person that they did not know. There are literally people who have jumped into the ocean in an attempt to stop a large shark from eating someone. Tell me something, which is more frightening, a naked man attacking someone in a vicious way (like biting him on the face), or a SHARK, int the OCEAN, which has already bitten off someone’s arm, leg, or other body part? I know which I would be more afraid of, and which I would NOT attack . . . the SHARK. It is not unreasonable to assume that you could literally throw rocks, shoes, etc. at a man attacking someone, in an attempt to stop the attack. Often all it takes to stop an attack is to yell at the attacker! A kick would not put most people in a great deal of danger from a naked, unarmed man, especially if the kick is to a person who is already down on the ground. Yes, it is pretty scary for a person to be eating the face off another person, but frankly, it is pretty scary that people would not try to help the poor victim! Calling someone ridiculous for voicing such an opinion is absolutely stupid. You’re an idiot for doing so!

    • Dont tell me what i would do just because that is what you would do. LIke i said the country is full of cowards who would rather stand and watch people getting killed and take pictures instead of being a real man and stopping the violence. If the guy was armed that would be one thing but he was basically sitting on the guy eating his face there was more then one witness and they were men of hefty size not little men so they could have easily went over there and knocked the guy off the other and took control of the situation before the cops got there. Be real. Standing up for cowards is disgusting. I would never watch another human eat another human and not do anything about it.

  5. “New Witness Provides Insight in Miami “Zombie” Attack” page references a graphic image from the scene. Says “Access Denied” every time you click on it. Odd.

  6. This story and the story mentioned above both say the men involved were possibly using some new from of LSD. Perhaps, this new drug is actually causing the zombie symptoms. If that is the case it could only be a mtter of time before the CIA starts pumping this stuff into major metropolitan water supplies. Better start using bottled water for drinking and all personal hygiene!

  7. Applepaul says:
    • Good find. We are told it is drugs, and it very well may be. We at ZZN are not saying that either case IS zombie… simply that it is plausible, and we should all take note and follow the case carefully!!

  8. darkest ange; says:

    have it ever been thought that maybe the man was on pcp and thought he was a zombie? i mean i believe in the ZA but this eems tobe a case where 2 naked men were in and most likely were high off some drug. i seen somebody get shot 9 times and he was on pcp and he was still going after the cops.. we all gotta think of possible answers before we get all crazy :)

    • LycanAnimaL says:

      The idea of drug use could be the case but could also just be a cover up to hide something more to prevent panic in the public and media. These days with bio warfare and evolving illnesses anything is possible. There are actually some cases like this when drugs have no involvement…an example is lycanthropy. Though a person does not really turn into a beast…the ones being has mentally altered itself and in that state the still active nerves in a human body can still function to a point. That is not even counting adrenaline from fight or flight.

  9. sid turner says:

    Who said the guy was eating his face???? WTF is up with the video?? All I see is a pair of legs on the sidewalk and no attack at all just a bunch of cops running around. But if in fact the cop shot a naked man 6 times as reported why did he shoot an unarmed man 6 times??? I was taught you can only use the minimum force nessisary to make the person ” compell to comply” like a naked man would make an officer fear for his life that he had to shoot him 6 times?????
    We wont hear the truth about it anyways because either they will say the naked dude had a gun hiden between his ass cheeks or the cop missed 5 outa 6 times i mean if the guy had a gun i could see multiple rounds fired to take the dude down but 6 shots?? What was the cop afffraid the guy was gona bend over and fart at him???
    then agan where did the story originate the dude was eating the other guys face????? I want to read it in black and white from a credible news source from Fl or is this just a sick take on a couple of fags having a tiff????

    • How about CBS MIAMI? “Credible” enough for ya? Re read this article for the latest update.

    • Dude, it was on the news, there were public witnesses stating that the guys face had near enough been completely eaten away and if you watch the video from the surveillance camera, skip to very near the end when it’s zoomed in and you’ll see the victim attempt to sit up. If you look carefully, you’ll see his arm is completely crimson, blood all over it. You don’t see his face but you can tell some he has suffered some incredibly serious bloodloss and damage.

  10. sid turner says:

    Wtf is the video at???? Trying to find it to watch it but all tabs lead to zip!!!

  11. Am I the only one who watched this broadcast and noticed that they have totally covered up the main facts in this incident. Not once did the reporter mention the fact that the guy had eaten half of this mans face and also neglected to mention the fact that the aggressor took up to 6 shots to go down. What the fuck. I thought the news was meant to state the facts, not dance around them with vague conjectures.

  12. Casey Roman says:

    “We ask, what threat could a naked man pose that a shot to a leg would not alleviate?
    ZZN continuing to ask the tough questions!”

    Because shooting someone in the leg is still deadly force. Police are trained to shoot center of mass (COM) and to continue to fire untill that person is no longer a threat.
    Shooting someone in the leg is hollywood bull.

  13. I live about 50 miles north of this and the news that reported here didn’t fail to mention that the guy was actually eating the victims face and continued to do so despite being shot multiple times. Ive always been a believer in the ZA and this is all the reason I need to start preparing myself.

    • Mark my words… this story will “fade away” from national media within a week. In a month or two, they may come back with an update and the release of the names, but the rest will be swept under the rug. I urge all to follow this story closely… I know I will!

    • harrell says:

      i have been talking about preparing for years but this story has def. sparked me to hurry up….i will be following closely as well.

  14. Michael Phelan says:

    I saw in a recent newspaper that there was a second shooting victim on the scene. Why was a second person shot? A second agressor? If it were zombies like you’re saying, then the second guy could have been the so called victim.

    • It is entirely possible. We at ZZN only report and speculate about the things that other news outlets prefer not to. Can you imagine how many people would roll their eyes if CNN reported this as a Zombie Attack and not just a nut job?

      We can’t say if the guy actually was a Zed or not, but we can raise the possibility, least our friends in FL be under prepared!
