Three people got hallucinated over drugs and claimed that they were hurt and shot by their imaginary attackers in Jackson County, Florida.
The Jackson County Sheriff's office received a call from a newspaper delivery person complaining about two men and a woman shouting from second floor of a house for help. They claimed that they were shot and held hostages for several hours, according to WMBB.com.

When police urged them for details about the attackers they were unable to provide proper details. They said they had been attacked and the woman claimed that she had been stabbed in her abdomen. But further investigation revealed that it was a light superficial scratch and all other injuries were self-inflicted by the trio themselves.
