PORT ANGELES, WASHINGTON
JULY 18, 2007
After yesterdays attack on a young boy in Port Angeles, a search mission was formed to find and capture the assailant who disappeared into the wilderness on the outskirts of the Olympic National Park at around 6:00pm.
The search mission was called off around 8:00pm last night due to loss of daylight only to be resumed this morning. A C.Z.R.G field analyst became a volunteer for the search mission and reported to the C.Z.R.G. headquarters at around 11:30am.
All morning, the dogs were hot on the trail of the man who attacked the young boy yesterday. At about 9:30 this morning, the man was spotted walking towards us from about 500 yards away. The police officer in charge of our 8 man search team immediately told us to halt. Everyone one stopped in their positions while another officer called on to his radio to report the find and to give our location using a GPS device. Using his bull horn, the officer in charge ordered the man to stand down and to throw any weapons to the ground. At this point all officers on our team had their handguns aimed and ready. The man did not stop and kept moving towards us with a limp. The officer warned the man once more, saying he would fire on him. The man kept coming. At this point the officer put down his bull horn and fired one shot hitting the man in the left arm. The man fell to the ground, moaning. He then stood up and continued to come towards us. The closer he got, I could see the hesitation in the officers to put this man down because he was unarmed. One more shot fired hit the man in the chest knocking him to the ground. Once again the man stood up within two minutes of the shot and continued to come closer to one of the officers. I remember hearing one of the officers yelling, "Did you see that!?". At this point everyone was yelling at the man to stand down. The man lifted both arms out in front of him, not seeming to even wince in pain with the wounded arm and chest. He picked up pace at about 10ft out from one of the officers. A shot rang out and the man was hit in the head only 5ft from the officer. The man fell to the ground and this time did not move again.
I was not allowed to go near the body. The other two search teams met up with ours and we all sat around and talked about what had happened. The body was put on a make shift stretcher and hiked out of the forest. The officers and paramedics I talked to all said the same thing. This man was on some sort of drugs, possibly PCP, and that was how he sustained two gun shots and kept coming.
The question remains as to where this zombie came from and if there is only one. The authorities have not quarantined the area and probably will not do so. The C.Z.R.G will classify this event as a Class 3 Sighting. All precautions should be taken.
