Miami police and witnesses say that an officer on Saturday fatally shot a naked man who was chewing on the face of another man on a downtown causeway off-ramp.
Witnesses said that a woman saw two men fighting and flagged down a police officer, who came upon the naked man mauling the other man, the Herald reported.
The offender refused police orders to stop chewing on his victim's face, which led a police officer to fire several shots, The Miami Herald reported, adding that he had continued his gruesome attack after being wounded.
The other man was transported to the hospital with critical injuries,his face allegedly half eaten, according to police. Their identities were not released.
A photograph posted on The Herald's website shows an officer standing watch on the ramp next to two police cruisers, with a body lying on a pedestrian walkway just below the newspaper’s two-story parking garage. Police requested The Herald’s video surveillance tapes.
