Naked man, shot by police, remains hospitalized

PALM BEACH SHORES, FL (WFLX) - The naked man police shot in Palm Beach Shores is still in the hospital Wednesday.

Police say his name is Adam Brown. It's reported Brown was walking around an apartment complex with a gun threatening residents.

When officers showed up and told him to drop his weapon, he pointed it at them. They shot him, and he was then rushed into surgery.

Now, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is helping them investigate. "This is a dangerous profession. You never know from one minute to the next what you're going to encounter," said Palm Beach Shores Police Chief Steven Knifffin. "These officers, I'm sure, didn't expect to encounter this at 2:45 in the morning."

We did not get an update on how Brown is doing after surgery. Meanwhile, two Palm Beach Shores Police Officers have been placed on administrative leave.
