It took a Taser, a K9 and multiple Martin County sheriff’s deputies to pull a 19-year-old Florida State University student off the man he had killed and from whose face he was biting off pieces of flesh.

Austin Harrouff clung to 59-year-old John Stevens late Monday in the driveway of Stevens’ home in Jupiter River Estates. He was delusional, deputies said.

Duffy’s issued the following statement:

“Duffy’s Sports Grill has been a staple in the Jupiter community serving guests for over 25 years. We are shocked and saddened to learn about the incidents that have occurred in our local community. The restaurant is working closely with the Martin County Sheriff’s Office to support their investigation and will continue to assist law enforcement in providing them with the assets they need. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Stevens family.”
