A Florida man was shot dead Thursday after breaking into a stranger’s house, getting into bed with the homeowner, and saying “I love you” while wielding a machete, authorities said.

The victim was asleep in an apartment attached to his home in Fruitville, Florida, when the bizarre ordeal began. The unnamed homeowner woke up to find the intruder lying next to him with a machete belonging to the victim. The armed man—who authorities have not identified—was whispering his sweet nothings to the victim when he woke him up.

“I have an intruder that broke into my home,” the victim told 911 dispatchers, Fox 35 reports. “He’s got a damn machete and he’s a little whacked.”

The victim added: “I woke up on a mattress and there’s a guy lying next to me saying, ‘I love you.’ I’m weirded out. He’s got my machete in his hand.”

4. I am sure there will be twists and turns in this story, but as it stands

This is exactly what the term “ fuck around and find out” is designed for. If you climb into my bed with a machete and I have access to a gun, I will shoot you.
