This is precisely why clowns scare some people. A Chicago teen went up to a man dressed up as a clown, pulled a gun, and demanded money. The clown promptly grabbed the gun and shot and killed the kid. It turns out that the man was an off-duty police officer who was participating in a South Side fundraiser for a day-care business.

Before the fatal confrontation, Jerry Moore had boasted to his 19-year-old big brother Mike Jordan that he was going to rob someone and showed off a .38-caliber revolver. The family is demanding to know why the teen was shoot repeatedly. However, it is unlikely that such an incident would be found to be anything other than a justified shooting. The officer’s life was in danger and, given the struggle, he will be likely cleared in any investigation.
Th officer suffered minor injuries. One person was also reportedly taken into custody.
