Just after 9 am on Wednesday, cops say, the suspect entered the Asian World Market at 3106 Cherokee Street
in Gravois Park.
The suspect was described as a thin black male about five feet tall, clad in a blue hoodie, dark pants, dark shoes, white belt, a full red face mask and brown gloves.

He came in with a white bag and pulled out a dark-colored handgun. He announced he was going to rob her.
So what did she do? It was not a safe move, but she did it anyway.
This take-no-shit lady decided to pull out her own gun and fire at him.
What did he do? He ran away, down Minnesota Street.
The investigation, police say, is ongoing.
