    And won't be fired for it!

    Papa John's Pizza is standing by a pizza delivery woman who opened fire Sunday on an armed robber in an act of self defense.

    The pizza franchise told FoxNews.com Thursday the employee, who hasn't been named, will not be fired from the company.

    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.


    While Papa John's prohibits employees -- including delivery drivers -- from carrying firearms on the job, the pizza giant said Thursday the woman would not be let go from the company. She instead will be reassigned to another role, according to the company.


    "The safety of Papa John's employees is a top priority for our company, " the company said in an email to FoxNews.com.

    "Company policy prohibits employees from utilizing firearms in the performance of their duties.We plan no changes to our current policy, which is designed to protect customers and employees," the statement read. "Upon investigation and considering the specific facts of the situation, we have reassigned the employee to work in the store and are offering her counseling to help her recuperate from the incident."

    Authorities said the woman, who was not arrested, acted out of fear for her life.

    "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.

    The crime happened a day before another Papa John's employee was attacked at gunpoint in Missouri.

    Fox affiliate KTVI reports that a Papa John's pizza delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint around 10 p.m. Monday in St. Louis. Two men approached the driver with a gun and stole his wallet, while he was making a delivery, according to the The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. The suspects, who have not been caught, sped away in a white pick-up truck.

    Anyone with information on the attempted robbery in Decatur, Ga., is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.

    I wonder why Mr. Right Wing Papa John doesn't want his employees carrying firearms for protection.

    "Donquaz." Wtf, is there some African-American baby-name book somewhere that these people use to name their waste of life offspring or do they just make this shit up out of the blue?

    Hmm probably because if he allows that and one of his employees acts a fool and commits a crime with the firearm while on the job maybe he could be considered liable and get his ass sued to shit?

    It's a shame he didnt fire the woman, then you're silly little bullshit political quip would have made a shitload more sense! But instead you came off looking like some sort of Rush Limbaugh wannabe.

    Your read of people is very astute. I am *definitely* a Rush wannabe. Yes.

    She must be desperate for a job if she's delivering pizza in such a bad area. Poor woman. How shitty that she has to work while being terrified for her life.
    I hope she shot every tooth out of his punk face.

    I was referring to the way you took a political jab, just to take a political jab. You know, trying stir up shit with the other party. That is exactly what Rush does, no?

    Agreed. Most of Decatur is nice and many people that work at Emory and the CDC live there. It's a sad strange story.

    This happened Sunday and as an Atlantan, I am seeing the story already being *very* politicized here by both sides. And Papa Johns, sensing the public outcry sure to come if they fired her and enforced their own policy, has further muddied the political waters. I am surprised, legally speaking, they didn't let her go but with a very nice severance.

    They make it up out of the blue. I have a friend that is a pediatrician. He says he gets patients with weird names and they are all black. One had the name "L-a" (Ladasha). Another he went to the hospital when she was born and saw in the chart the baby's name was "Gonorrhea" (Gah-nor-rhea). They said the mother had gonorrhea. When the mother saw that on her record, she said she liked the word and named the baby that. She did not know the actual pronunciation of the word and just made it up.

    I'm calling BS on this name. It doesn't have an apostrophe in it.

    It says she's being reassigned instead of being fired. For pizza delivery drivers, being reassigned is worse than being fired. The people inside make minimum wage. Drivers make twice that or more depending on their location.

    It sounds like she's in a bad area, so she probably delivers to a lot of....let's just say people who typically don't tip. But I bet she still makes way more than minimum wage and she spends her day listening to music in her car. That's all over now.

    Wow, i would have thought that the in store gig would be the more valued gig over the delivery job. But now when i think back to high school, any of my friends who worked the pizza biz wanted to be drivers, but that was just so they could get baked on the way to the deliveries!
