Miami police shoot dead 'growling cannibal'
A naked man found in Miami, Florida, eating the face of another naked man growled at a police officer before being shot dead, witnesses say.
The attacker was reportedly warned to back away but when he continued to eat the victim, the officer opened fire several times, killing him.
Drugs may have played a part in the attack, police say, which happened next to a busy road on Saturday afternoon.
About 75% of the victim's face was missing, local media have reported.
Cyclist Larry Vega said there was "blood all over the place" when he came across the horrific scene by MacArthur Causeway.
"I told him get off," Mr Vega told WSVN Fox 7. "The guy just kept eating the other guy away like ripping his skin."
He said he alerted a police officer, who warned the attacker several times to back away from the victim.
"The guy just stood his head up like that with a piece of flesh in his mouth and growled," Mr Vega said.
The victim, who is said to be a homeless man, is reported to be in a critical condition in hospital....
