Zombie Apocalypse in Miami: Naked Man Killed By Police After Eating Face of Victim

by at . Comments

In a scarily real-life scene that conjured up images of a zombie apocalypse, a man was shot and killed in Miami after attempting to eat the face off another.

The horror began about 2 p.m. Saturday on the MacArthur Causeway when a series of gunshots were heard on the ramp, which is along NE 13th Street.

According to Miami police sources, a road ranger saw a naked man chewing on another man’s face and shouted on his loud speaker for him to back away.

A passerby also saw it and called the cops. The Miami Herald building's security cameras captured the incident. Be forewarned, the video is disturbing ...

The responding officer, who has not been identified, ordered the naked man to back away immediately. When he continued the assault, the officer shot him.

The attacker failed to stop eating his victim even after being shot, forcing the officer to keep firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.

The other man was transported to the hospital with critical injuries, and is fighting for his life, according to police. Neither man's identity has been released.

The incident, which came as crowds descended upon South Beach for the annual Urban Beach Week festival, snarled traffic on the causeway for hours.

In a text message Sunday, Javier Ortiz, spokesman for Miami police’s Fraternal Order of Police, said the officer who fired the fatal shots was “a hero.”

Investigators believe the victim may have been homeless, and the attacker might have been suffering from "cocaine psychosis," a drug-induced craze.

UPDATE, 5/29: Rudy Eugene, 31, of N. Miami Beach, has been identified as the attacker. The name of the victim, still in serious condition, has not been released.

Eugene was reportedly under the influence of cocaine and/or LSD at the time of the bizarre incident. Follow the above link for additional details.

UPDATE, 5/30: Ronald Poppo, 65, has been identified as the victim. He is amazingly still alive, and in critical condition. He is homeless.

A new video shows the unprovoked attack - reportedly blamed now on psychosis resulting from bath salts, ingested or injected - in its entirety.

Disturbingly, it continues for nearly 18 minutes before police kill Eugene, with a number of motorists driving by and doing nothing to stop it:

UPDATE, 5/31: Police and doctors believe bath salts - not the Bath & Body Works type but illegal, designer street drugs - may have been behind the attack.

"Wendigo psychosis" (also spelled many other ways, including "Windigo psychosis" and "Witiko psychosis") refers to a condition in which sufferers developed an insatiable desire to eat human flesh even when other food sources were readily available,[15] often as a result of prior famine cannibalism.[16] Wendigo psychosis has traditionally been identified by Western psychologists as a culture-bound syndrome, though there is a debate over the existence of phenomenon as a genuine disorder. The theory was popular primarily among psychologists in the early 1900s

so here's my theory,people r saying that the government cant be hiding this because this is public but there is the possiblilty that the government did have something to do with this, but thats the only thing their hiding. also, anyone noticing that 2012 is getting worse and worse every day? my opinion? we r all screwed. i've been preparing for this since december, 2011, get ready everyone, a fight is coming our way
