IN McDonald's Employee Shoots At Robber

An employee of a New Albany McDonald's has been suspended from his job for shooting at a woman who was robbing the place.

Police say Clifton Brown Junior violated no laws last week when he shot at the woman who stuck up another employee outside the restaurant, then robbed the drive-up window.

Brown told police that he pulled his gun out and ordered the fleeing robber to stop. She then raised her own gun and he fired two shots, which apparently missed. The woman escaped on foot.

Brown has a permit to carry the handgun, but the restaurant owner says he considers Brown's actions inappropriate. He's suspended Brown until the shooting is reviewed.

Brown couldn't be reached for comment.
