In a grisly attack that resembled something out of a horror movie, a naked man was discovered in downtown Miami on Saturday, May 26, in the process of chewing off the face of another man. The bizarre incident unfolded around 2 p. Vega quickly alerted a passing police officer, who attempted to stop the attack. When the man refused to back away, the officer shot him once. He continued biting, however, stopping only after several more shots were fired, eventually killing him, reports the Miami Herald. The victim, an unidentified homeless man, was rushed to a hospital, with critical injuries. The skin on his face was ripped off, his eyes gouged and his nose mauled, leaving only his goatee. Police suspect that the attacker, who has been identified as year-old Rudy Eugene, had overdosed on a new, potent form of LSD.

As the attack continued, Vega said the officer shot the attacker, who continued chewing the victim's face.
