BENTON HARBOR (WKZO) -- The former Walgreens pharmacist who opened fire on a group of armed robbers in Benton Harbor in 2011 has lost his appeal in federal court. Jeremy Hoven sued the company after he was fired for violating company policy regarding a ban on weapons at work.

The appeals court issued a 3-0 ruling Monday siding with Walgreens that even though Hoven was licensed to carry the gun, company policy took precedent. No one was hurt in the incident, which happened during the overnight shift.
