He said he believed the other man had started "to change into a zombie" and wanted to bite him, Albuquerque news station KOB4 reports.
Apparently, Damon Perry, 23, kicked and punched his friend, Christopher Paquin, then beat him to death with a microwave and electric guitar, a New Mexico police spokesperson told The Daily Beast.
“It was one of the absolute worst [crime scenes> I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been with the department for 15 years,” spokesman Marcus Marques told the Beast.
After killing his friend, Paquin left the apartment where he was drinking and ran through the housing complex chasing people with a sharp object. He was eventually taken down by two maintenance workers who were near the scene of the crime.
