If you have the urge to be a clown this Halloween, you won't be able to get your costume from Target.

The scary clown craze, which has gone as far as to lure children into the woods, has caused the store to take its clown masks off the shelves.

Target has also decreased its selection online.

There are no reports from Target on whether or not there has been an increase or decrease in the number of clown masks sold since the scary clown incidents. A representative from the store says the decision was made out of sensitivity to the issue.
