This Achievement is relatively easy, as it basically wants you to beat one of the "mini-bosses" of this game.

The picture or this Achievement is a little hint, as the man shown is the owner of the grocery store. On September 20th, you'll be required to go to the store as part of the plot. You'll fight this character and you'll need to defeat him to proceed through the story. Once you do, the Achievement unlocks.

If you're looking to get this sooner than the 20th, you can to to Wonderland Plaza during the night of the 19th. Otis will call you about the amusement park, saying that one of the rides is out of control. There you'll find Adam the Clown, and if you defeat him you'll get this Achievement as well as freeing Greg who opens up a shortcut in the women's bathroom.

If for some reason you can't beat these two characters, or simply want to try killing someone else, there are ten other psychopaths throughout the mall, but only some of them are available at any given time.

Please note that Carlito, Isabella, the convicts, and the cultists do not qualify for this Achievement, despite the fact that you get a bonus for killing them.
