An employee at a Little Caesars in Florida shot and killed an attacker wearing a clown mask who was armed with scissors Saturday night, according to police.
The employee, Heriberto Feliciano, 28, was reportedly closing the Little Caesars when the attacker ran in and began hitting him with a wooden post in the face and shoulders, with scissors in hand. The attacker reportedly hit Feliciano so hard with the wood that the board broke, Fox News reported.
After the attacker brought Feliciano to the ground, he reportedly tried to stab him with the scissors. Feliciano quickly pulled out his concealed firearm and reportedly fired off four or five shots. After discharging his firearm Feliciano said he put his gun on top of his vehicle and called police to report what had just happened.
Police reportedly started receiving calls about shots fired at the Little Caesers around 11:50 p.m. When they arrived, police found the alleged attacker laying in the parking lot with a clown mask and scissors on the ground. After police saw the suspect had been shot, he was taken to the hospital, where he died. (RELATED: Active Shooter Quickly ‘Shot To Death By Armed Citizen,’ Police Report)
“Even though [Feliciano was] being attacked, he’s able to pull out a concealed firearm he has and fires multiple rounds at the suspect,” Holly Hill Police Chief Stephen Aldrich told FOX35 Orlando. “We’re obviously aggressively pursuing this to find out where this individual came from and why this attack occurred.”
