Suicidal Man Feels Better After Shooting a Police Robot With an AK-47 (Update: Video!)

After a Florida man called his family and told them he planned to kill himself (along with anyone who tried to stop him), police decided to address the situation by sending a $65,000 SWAT robot into the man's home.

According to WFTV, when the robot entered, the apparently unclothed man attempted to break the robot, then lit the thing up with an AK-47. Whatever happened in that moment seemed to have worked, because afterwards, he dressed himself and peacefully turned himself in. [WFTV]


UPDATE: NBC 2 has video footage from the robot, which shows the naked man shooting the bot. Somehow, the bot survived.
