In Season 1 of Fear the Walking Dead, the highway patrol was involved in an incident on the highway relating to a crash that was witnessed by Madison and Travis. The driver died on the scene and reanimated. He then proceeded to attack the paramedics who were attending him. The highway patrol the proceeded to try and subdue him with their batons. When this failed, they started using firearms. They shot him several times in the chest, but to no effect. The victim kept getting back up. Finally, one officer went for a head shot, putting the reanimated man down.
The whole incident was recorded (by both the news media and bystanders) and videos of the incident quickly went viral on the internet.
