TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A man is dead after running into a Florida police station complaining about taking bad drugs, then jumping from an ambulance and trying to break into homes before being shot by a homeowner.
The shooting happened early Wednesday morning in Tallahassee.
Havana Police Chief Tracy Smith says the man had previously jumped from his girlfriend's car and ran down the street. He banged on one woman's door before heading to the police station, where he started stripping off his clothes.
The man complained about chest pain and said he took some bad molly, a synthetic drug similar to ecstasy.
Medics were bringing him to a Tallahassee hospital when he jumped out of the ambulance.
Tallahassee police say he tried to break into several homes before being shot.
