A Cleveland businessman killed by police after he crashed his car and attacked the Good Samaritans who tried to help him had called 911 to say he was suicidal and being chased by witches, The Plain Dealer reports.
Brett Luengo, 33, was shot and killed after he crashed his car on Interstate 90 and then attacked the people who stopped to help him. A Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s deputy showed up and shot him in the chest, killing him.
Luengo was apparently in a psychotic state. In the video, he’s seen with a bloody face being kicked by the cop, getting up, walking toward the cop, and being kicked again.
“Get down on the ground, get down on the ground,” the deputy yells. “Don’t try me buddy.”
Luengo pursued the deputy and was shot dead on the side of the freeway.
Police told a local TV station that the deputy appeared to have followed the proper protocol.
