Florida Man Shot By Homeowner During Drug-Addled Rampage

A man was shot and killed by a Tallahassee homeowner Wednesday after charging into a police station, complaining of bad drugs, escaping from an ambulance and attempting to break into homes.

According to reports, Jarod Clemons, 27, fled his girlfriend’s car, ran down the street, pounded on a woman’s door and yelled that police were chasing him, but was refused entry. Police subsequently found a stolen gun he’d left on her stairs. 

Clemons then went to a police station where he started taking off his clothes, sweating profusely and complaining of chest pain that he attributed to taking MDMA. Police put him in an ambulance where he was hooked to an IV, but around midnight he demanded to be freed. A medic struggled with him, but Clemons escaped and began trying to break into homes, police said, before he was shot. No charges have been filed against the homeowner.
