Papa John's lets pizza delivery woman who shot armed robber keep her job, Police: "She had no other choice"

As the police say, the pizza delivery woman "had no other choice" and she would have been in real danger if she hadn't had her concealed handgun permit.  From Fox News:
The employee was making a delivery in Decatur, Ga., Sunday night when a man approached her vehicle, forcing her onto the ground at gunpoint, according to the DeKalb County Police Department. The woman, who had a gun in her pocket, was able to fire at the man while on the ground -- striking the alleged assailant, identified as 24-year-old Donquaz Stevenson, in the face. 
Stevenson was later found in a neighbor's yard and arrested, according to police, who said the pizza delivery might have been a setup. Local media outlets reported that a second suspect carjacked the delivery woman's silver 2000 Honda Accord and remains on the run. 
Stevenson was charged with armed robbery and was being treated for a gunshot wound at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. 
The delivery woman's mother had told WSB-TV her daughter is worried she may lose her job because she was carrying a firearm at work for protection. . . . 
"She had no other choice. She must have been in fear for her life and she reacted," Capt. Stephen Fore with the DeKalb County Police Department told WSB-TV.  . . .

A friend of mine used to be a regional manager for Papa John's. One night we were hanging out and he got a phone call. He had to leave to fire a driver who drew a firearm during a robbery.

Sadly, this is a first for Papa John's. They have not been strong supporters of the Second Amendment for their employees. Hopefully this reflects a change in their policy. Too often there are stories of delivery drivers robbed because of a set up.
