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.
“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.”
