A clerk who prevented a gas station from being robbed by pulling out his gun says he was fired hours later for carrying a firearm against company policy. Shannon “Bear” Cothran told the Telegraph of Nashua that he was working at a Shell station in Nashua early Monday morning when a man threatened him with a knife.
