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.


Sweet a new video...bath salts that's new to me but I'm not familiar with that drug I have heard you can buy it legally online but not sure...I wonder if people could actually see the man eating the other...if so it sucks that no one did anything sooner


seriously if the government was hiding this then why is this up. Come on people wake up.and if the government has anything to do about it then we wont be able to have guns for much longer so we will no longer be able to defend ourselves...


Man! You people get your heads on straight. It is a drug or the government hates the world. I beleive the government hates us so they save themselves and kill everyone else!


just saying, this drug thing has been around for a long time,so if that is the fact why hasn't this happened before? i'm not saying it is the end of the world, but things are getting worse. if you live in the city, get the hell out. it is where it will spread the most. get a gun, learn how to use it and be able to find water and food. we haven't heard the end of this. it will just keep on getting worse so prepare for it. I'm not going down without a fight.


so if this were to be a "drug" why would he have super human strength growl and feel no pain when getting shot....? that doesn't sound like a drug like come on people just dont eat other peoples faces off


They haven't found any toxic substances or drugs in his system. I think zombies. Not in a retarded Hollywood way but maybe a bug or something. I don't know you really never know.


Those of you who think this is a zombie attack...you are out of your minds. Google big lurch. this isn't the first time it's happened. It's because of drugs, morons.


No game or movie is the same than real life.


That man was no zombie, no drugs turned him into a naked flesh eater, it was the work of satan, He was simply and most definitely demon possessed.
