Remember last year when the CDC came out with that incredibly informative but completely tongue-in-cheek zombie awareness campaign? Yeah, so, maybe that wasn't totally made up.
THEY'RE HERE, PEOPLE:
One man was shot to death by Miami police, and another man is fighting for his life after he was attacked and his face allegedly half eaten, by a naked man on the MacArthur Causeway off ramp, police said.Why don't you just read that again to be safe. EATING SOME DUDE'S FACE, SHOT REPEATEDLY, KEPT EATING. If that isn't a zombie, I don't know what is. Worse, the man with his face half eaten off is now infected and probably biting nurses at some Miami hospital as we speak.
The bloodshed began about 2 p.m. when a series of gunshots were heard on the ramp, which is along NE 13th Street, just south of The Miami Herald building. Witnesses said a woman saw the two men fighting and flagged down a police officer who was in the area.
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.
One police source called it "the most gruesome thing he’d ever seen." Obviously he's never seen Evil Dead.
According to another source who spoke with the officer involved, the officer saw what the zombie was doing and ordered him to stop. At that point, the zombie GROWLED at the officer and kept eating. This is some real shit, folks.
Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, they eatin' errrrbody out here!
