DELRAY BEACH, FL - Authorities in South Florida say deputies shot a naked man after he attacked a retired police officer and bit another man on the face in Delray Beach.

Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw says the man died after the Tuesday night attack. He says it wasn't immediately clear whether he died from gunshot wounds or from a medical condition.

The man was walking on Military Trail when he attacked a retired New York City police officer. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound man then began chasing a man and a 10-year-old boy.

At some point he started fighting an 18-year-old, who defended himself with a box cutter. The man then bit the 18-year-old on the face.

Deputies responded and shot the man, who died at a hospital.
