A New Mexico gas station clerk is enraged after she was suspended from her job for shooting an armed robber this week, according to media reports.

Jennifer Wertz, an employee at the Circle K store in Albuquerque, says she was suspended for two weeks for opening fire on a man who pulled a gun on her Monday night during her shift.

“He pointed the gun at my face, I grabbed my gun from my pocket, I cocked it and I shot,” Wertz told the news outlet.

She added that she put her gun in her pocket after she heard that a nearby convenience store was knocked off.

WIBC host Tony Katz covered the clerk's story on Tuesday's broadcast.

Katz:

The entire purpose for you in the confrontation is to go home to your family, which is why people utilize the second amendment. It's why the carry a firearm: to ensure you go home.
