    The 7-Eleven clerk in Ingram who shot and wounded a knife-carrying robber will not be charged with a crime, prosecutors said today.

    A review of the case determined that Kaelin Weber, 24, was justified in shooting the robber, Mike Manko, a spokesman for the Allegheny County district attorney, said in a statement.

    The robbery suspect, Lawrence V. Davis, 20, of Norristown in Montgomery County, now faces an additional charge of attempted homicide, Mr. Manko said. Allegheny County police already had charged him with robbery and aggravated assault.

    Police said Mr. Davis, wearing a mask and carrying a knife, entered the 7-Eleven store in Ingram about 4:30 Christmas morning. Investigators said he leaped over the counter and inflicted cuts on Mr. Weber's right hand and elbow.

    Mr. Weber fired several shots at Mr. Davis, causing a number of wounds to his body. Police said none of the injuries was life-threatening.

    Mr. Weber continues to work at the store.

    I don't understand how he could still be working for 7-11. I worked for them as a teenager and they have a "don't resist an attack or be fired" deal in their handbook. I remember a clerk who was fired for resisting a robbery to save his own life. I don't think a corporation like this would risk employing someone so "dangerous". Maybe he was still employed for the couple of days it took to write this story.

    Good for him, for surviving the assault. Not too bright, though. Such places are called "Stop 'N' Rob" for good reason.

    I would think the "don't resist" policy just went out the door when I got cut or hit. I am glad the situation went to the good and the man has his job.

    Good for him!

    Now he just needs to find himself a higher paying and safer line of work.

    How could a company fire a 'hero'? That would be bad for PR wouldn't it? Although headlines like this aren't real popular in today's world, but every now and then it's good for folks to see that some folks still stand up for themselves and refuse to be victims.

    Their labor pool is getting smaller, so they needed to keep him, after all he probably has a pulse.

    The Clerk is very lucky. Had the criminal known what he is doing with the knife, the Clerk would be dead.
