Outrage as AutoZone employee and Air Force vet praised for bravery by sheriff is FIRED for confronting armed robber

An AutoZone employee and Air Force veteran who daringly thwarted an armed robbery at his Virginia store by using his own handgun at the scene has been fired for breaking company protocol.

Devin McClean, 23, who worked at the York County store up until about a week ago, says he managed to slip out during the attack, grab his glock .40 handgun from his car and return – frightening away the bandit.

‘When I yelled “freeze” and I said “stop, drop the weapon,” he threw his hands up with his gun still in his hand, he started running,’ Mr McClean told WTKR.

Relieving his endangered manager at the front of the store, Mr McClean described his boss’ immense gratitude to him after held up by a man police say had robbed more than 30 stores in the last year.

‘He was like, “Thank you Devin, you really saved my life,’ Mr McLean recalled of his manager.

Two days later, to his entire disbelief, he was fired.
