A woman delivering pizzas for Papa John’s in DeKalb, Georgia, could lose her job for using her gun during an altercation while on the clock although it might have saved her life.

According to WSB-TV, the unidentified Papa John’s employee was out making deliveries when a man approached her car. “She thought [the man] was there to pick up the pizza," Capt. Stephen Fore with the DeKalb County Police Department said. "When he got to her he produced a handgun and forced her out of the vehicle and on to the ground.”

The woman was able to grab the handgun in her own pocket and shoot the man, who was later identified as Donquaz Stevenson, 24. Another suspect stole the woman’s car and remains at large.

Stevenson was found in a nearby yard with a gunshot wound in his face.

"She had no other choice," Fore said. "She must have been in fear for her life and she reacted."

Reporters at WSB-TV talked to the woman’s mother. She said that her daughter is scared she might lose her job for carrying a gun at work, although it might have kept her alive.

The Blaze reported Stevenson has been charged with armed robbery. Papa John’s has yet to respond to their request for comment.
