A Florida man was on Tuesday shot dead by police after he attacked a retired cop and bit off part of a teenager’s face … and a witness was there to record the video.
According to police in Palm Beach, the naked man was walking down a road near Delray Beach when, all of a sudden, he attacked the ex-NYPD cop who has been hospitalized with serious injuries.
Then the man chased a man and his 10-year old son on that same road, before attacking an 18-year old dude, biting him in the face until the teen managed to fight him off by stabbing him with a knife-like object.
Meanwhile, police arrived and tried to subdue the ‘delirious’ man by tasering him to no avail. When he charged at cops, police was left with no option: a cop opened fire, hitting him thrice in the lower body and torso. He died later that night in a nearby hospital.
‘We don’t know right now if he’s expired from the gunshots, or if he’s expired because of obviously he’s on some type of drugs that have made him act like this,’ Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw told the Palm Beach Post. ‘There’s no way to know if those are the shots that actually killed him, or if he’s died from what they called exited delirium. He’s obviously on some type of narcotics to make him act like this.’
