Police responded to the pizza shop in Holly Hill around 11:50 p.m. after receiving 911 calls about shots fired at the location. When they arrived, they found the alleged attacker laying in the parking lot with a clown mask and scissors on the ground. The suspect was taken to the hospital, where he later died.
Little Caesars employee Heriberto Feliciano, 28, later told police he was closing up the restaurant around 11:50 p.m. when a man wearing a clown mask attacked him. Surveillance video shows the masked attacker begin wielding a wooden post at the employee, who had just walked out of a side door after checking the store’s security system.
Feliciano said the masked man began hitting him with the wooden post in the face and shoulder until the plank broke, according to the police report.
The suspect, who has not been identified, allegedly nailed Feliciano to the ground and attempted to stab him with scissors — until the pizza shop worker’s quick thinking saved his life.
