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.
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 Local10.com 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!
