GEORGIA – Police in Georgia say a masked robber, resembling a horror movie villain is on the loose, and getting more violent.

The thief wears a mask from the movie “Scream,” and that’s what he’s making victims do.

Jonesboro police say this gunman snatched cash out of the hands of an off-duty deputy as he was paying for items at Dollar General.

The gunman then stole money from the register and backup register.

Police believe this is the same man who shot a security guard last week.

Clayton County police believe he has robbed or attempted to rob 12 other businesses in the area.
