Woman Fires ‘Warning Shot’ at Man Wearing Clown Mask
NOPE. Do not like. And probably wouldn’t have bothered with a warning shot were there a creepy, gun-toting clown darkening my door step.
From WDTN Ohio:
It happened just after 9 p.m. in the 700 block of Hart Street in Dayton.
The victim told police that she was preparing dinner in the kitchen when she saw a reflection in the lenses of her glasses. When she turned around, there was a male at the back door with an “unknown long rifle,” according to a Dayton police report.
She said the man was wearing a clown mask, a long-sleeved black shirt, black gloves and black jeans. The man was telling the woman to open the back door that was locked at the time. The victim ran into the living room, where she was able to see two other men in her front yard.
That’s when she grabbed her “black revolver handgun,” according to the police report.
The suspect with the clown mask ran into the yard. That’s when the woman exited her house and saw the suspect with the mask point the rifle at her and try to load his weapon.
She reportedly told the suspect to drop his weapon and he did not, that’s when she fired a “warning shot” into the garage. The suspects ran into an unknown direction.

Once again, never ever fire warning shots. This lady could be charged with public discharge of a firearm. Self Defense laws allow you to “defend” yourself, not fire warning shots.
We should be minus one evil clown.
Multiple mistakes – not having a cell phone in your pocket and not calling 911 ASAP and having them on the line while you are in the situation. Two – opening up the door when you know there are two men in the front and one in the back (with a gun). And finally, failing to shoot when the guy raised his rifle at her.
If you are in your house and they come in with a gun , then shooting is the only option. Exiting your house and then shooting at a person with a gun is dangerous. You will have to rely on the state law and the attitude of the city/county attorney.
Would like to see Andrew’s take on this situation.
Well look at the guy in Detroit, he opened his door and now all of his doors are opened by the guards.
