COPPERAS COVE - Students at Copperas Cove High School are still shaken up after some say they spotted two creepy clowns near campus early Wednesday morning. While the sighting is unconfirmed by the district, the claim did cause the school to move students inside while police secured the perimeter.
"I saw him on the train tracks over there and then he went through those bushes. It was pretty scary, pretty terrifying and kind of crazy" says Copperas Cove junior Riley Delong.
Rumored clown sightings and threats are happening nationwide, closer to home though a clown made a threat online against a Killeen high school this week and a different clown targeted students at two separate Waco High Schools the week before that. Kids in the area say they're now walking home from school in groups because they're scared of getting kidnapped by a clown.
"If you get kidnapped other people are there to help you out. Some of them are funny some of them are scary so I usually want to walk home in groups now" says Jordan, Copperas Cove sophomore.
