A school safety agent who grabbed a gun from a wounded cop and fired at thieves in Brooklyn will not be charged, authorities said Monday.

Eugene Pitts, 50, of Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, is not licensed to carry a gun and has been under law enforcement scrutiny for his role in the dramatic gun battle inside a Bedford-Stuyvesant auto shop on Saturday night.

The Brooklyn district attorney’s office said Monday that Pitts was in the clear.

Some have hailed him as a hero. “I’m grateful for that,” Pitts told the Daily News.

Pitts was hanging out inside the shop with friends Saturday when four or five robbers ordered everyone onto the ground, police sources said.

    I’m sorry, but that is one of the stupidest things I have read. How could charges have been even considered? This man saved another person’s life and showed he knew how and when to use a firearm. This guy should be given medal!

    It really is backwards that he had to undergo this scrutiny for defending another person.
