An off-duty Chicago police officer, who was dressed as a clown for a charity fundraiser, shot and killed a teen who tried to rob him at gunpoint as he left the event.

The off-duty officer left the fundraiser inside the Kiddie Korner Day Care just after 10 p.m. Friday and went to his car near 87th and Damen.

Police say the attacker, identified as 16 year-old Jerry Moore, pointed a gun at the officer. The two struggled, and the gun went off, killing Moore.

The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating.
