A children’s clown has been shot dead while heroically protecting a mother and her baby from an armed robber at a busy restaurant in Puebla, Mexico.

Humberto Rojas Landa (51), also known as Payaso Solecito – Little Sun Clown in English, provided laughter therapy to sick children in hospitals in the city.

Landa tried to protect a mother and her baby from an armed robber who entered the restaurant in the Chulavista area of the city to rob customers on February 6 by hitting the thug with a water jug.

The thief then shot Landa in the head before fleeing the scene on foot having robbed only a mobile phone.

The community of the Municipal Institute of Art and Culture of Puebla and hundreds of citizens have offered condolences to the family of Landa who have appealed for financial support in providing the slain man with a funeral.

Meanwhile, local police have launched a murder investigation.
