Man Eating Face Shot, A witness has described seeing a n***d man chewing on the face of another man on a road in Miami before the attacker was shot dead by police.
Larry Vega said he was riding his bike on Saturday afternoon off the MacArthur Causeway, which connects the centre of Miami with Miami Beach, when he saw the savage attack on the bridge’s off-ramp.
He told WSVN-TV in Miami: “The guy was, like, tearing him to pieces with his mouth, so I told him, ‘Get off’. The guy just kept eating the other guy away, like, ripping his skin.”
The victim was identified by the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner’s office as Rudy Eugene, 31, according to Miami television station WFOR.
Mr Vega flagged down a Miami police officer, who he said repeatedly ordered the attacker to get off the victim. The attacker just picked his head up and growled at the officer, Mr Vega said.
As the attack continued, Mr Vega said the officer shot the attacker, who continued chewing the face of the victim, who was also n***d. The officer fired again, killing the attacker.
Miami police have released few details about the attack, other than confirming that there was a fatal officer-involved shooting. (UKPA)
Zombie Attack In Miami, Rudy Eugene has been identified as the man-eating, face-chewing n***d homeless man shot dead by officers Sunday on a downtown highway ramp in Miami, as witnesses emerged to describe the gruesome scene.
The 31-year-old man was found in a zombie-like state of cannibal bliss, eating the face and neck of another n***d man, who has yet to be identified, and growling at police officers as they tried to subdue him before finally shooting him dead.
“He was ripping into his face with his teeth,” said Larry Vega, a witness to the attack, according to Reuters. “”He was ripping his skin, his neck. He had him held down. The guy couldn’t move really, and he was just tearing into his flesh.”
Vega reportedly flagged down a police officer, who shot Eugene dead after he failed to respond to orders to stop. By the time he was shot down, Eugene had reportedly chewed off a substantial chunk of his victim’s face.
“The guy just stood his head up [...] with a piece of flesh in his mouth, and growled,” Vega said. “You see these things in the movies, but when you see it up front and up close, it’s pretty traumatic. It really is.”
Miami police are looking for more witnesses and details of the incident. They believe Vega may have been in a drug-induced state at the time of the attack.
“Whenever we see that a person has taken all of his clothes off and has become violent, it’s indicative of this excited delirium that’s caused by an overdose of drugs,” Armando Aguilar of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police told WSVN-Fox 7. “What’s happening is inside their body their organs are burning up alive.” (International Business Times)
