Police said 24-year-old Andrew McClean walked into the pub waving a gun and announced a robbery. He took money from the cash register and then stole from some customers before the former cop fatally shot him, according to police.

The cop, identified by police sources as 69-year-old Robert Beardsley, retired in 1975. His police officer instincts kicked in Monday. He fired one round hitting the robber in the head killing him.
