BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) -- Two clowns were shot and killed by an unidentified gunman during their performance at a traveling circus in the eastern Colombian town of Cucuta, police said Wednesday.

The gunman burst into the Circo del Sol de Cali on Monday night and shot the clowns in front of an audience of 20 to 50 people, local police chief Jose Humberto Henao told Reuters.

One of the clowns was killed instantly, and the second died the next day in hospital.

"The killings had nothing to do with the show the victims were performing at the time of the incident," Henao said in a telephone interview. "We are investigating the motive."

With an entrance fee of under 50 cents, Circo del Sol de Cali attracts mostly poor Colombians. It pitched its tents in Cucuta, near the border with Venezuela, earlier this month.

"The clowns came out to give their show, and then this guy came out shooting them," one audience member told local television. "It was terrible."

OK, it probably doesn't even belong on the forum... but admit it- the thought of someone - two clowns- nevermind! :shock: :lol: Sorry, I've always hated clowns.

And remember, when attacked by clowns, always go for the juggler.

You mean like the NCAA Clowns:

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — As the University of Illinois' controversial American Indian mascot readied Wednesday to perform his last dance, men who have previously portrayed Chief Illiniwek said they are working to see that the tradition lives on in some form.

Removing the chief frees the university of NCAA sanctions after the organization deemed Illiniwek — portrayed by buckskin-clad students who dance at home football and basketball games and other athletic events — an offensive use of American Indian imagery and barred the school from hosting postseason athletic events.
