3 dressed as clowns break into home

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - Police in Gainesville, Texas say intruders dressed as clowns broke into a woman's home Tuesday night.

Authorities say she was sleeping on her couch when she awoke to three people in her home.


They were wearing clown masks armed with BB guns and shot the woman in the face.


"I realize the involvement of the clown mask that brings more light to this but we believe it was just a dispute between two young men."

Police think the intruders are teen boys that had a school yard fight with the victim's son; he wasn't home at the time.


Officers say nothing was actually taken from the home and they're treating this case as a burglary.
