Murder cut and dried, the man most likely violated Wendie's employee policy as well by engaging the subjects after they left. The reaility is that the money belonged to Wendie's and it was INSURED.

If the decedent's family sues the shooter, I doubt Wendies will be legally obligated to pay for the shooter's defense.

I predict there may be a murder charge filed as this is not a case of self defense.
Duh

If the gunman turned and pointed the gun at the employee how is it not self defense??

The alleged robbers left Wendie's, the Wendie's clerk was not in danger, the Wendie's clerk then went outside armed and replaced himself in danger, that is not a self defense shooting. Regardless, if the man violated Wendie's policy, he'll be fired and I doubt Wendie's will pay any toward the man's legal fees should there be a lawsuit or criminal charges. Just because someone robbed you, there's no law that says you get to go running on wild goose chase out in the public shooting people, the self defense claim of the Wendie's employee was when the robbery was occurring, not after.

LOL, why do I get a sneaking suspicion that the manager and dead guy are in cahoots, and the manager was simply killing the loose end?
