MIAMI - Sources identified the man who was shot and killed by police while biting off parts of another man's face near Downtown Miami on Saturday. Police sources identified the man as Rudy Eugene. Police said Eugene, 31, was found attacking another man near the west end of the MacArthur Causeway and Biscayne Boulevard on Saturday afternoon. "When the officer approached him, told him to stop, pointed a gun at him, he turned around and growled like a wild animal and kept eating at the man's face," Fraternal Order of Police President Armando Aguilar said Sunday. A witness said Eugene was biting off pieces of the other man's face and tossing them aside. He described it as looking like a scene out of The Walking Dead. Police then shot and killed Eugene after attempting to stop the assault. It's unclear what sparked the fight. Aguilar said Eugene had likely overdosed, citing four past instances in Miami-Dade County when people overdosed on a type of LSD, removed their clothes, and became violent.
