St. Louis 7-Eleven worker shoots would-be robber dead on her smoke break

A Missouri convenience store clerk was hailed as a “she-ro” by fellow employees after police said she fatally shot a would-be robber during a smoke break. The wild confrontation unfolded after the 35-year-old worker, who was not identified, stepped outside for a smoke during her shift at a 7-Eleven in St. Louis just before 3:50 a.m. Monday, cops said. Suddenly, an armed man approached her and tried to rob her — but the woman, who was also armed, pulled out a pistol and shot the man in the chest, arm and thigh. The suspect, 30, later died at St. Louis University Hospital, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. The female clerk, who was shot twice in the leg during the gunfight, was listed in stable condition, KTVI reports. Employees at the convenience store — which reopened about two hours after the shooting — said she worked at the store for years and now has a new nickname at work. “I was glad she protected herself,” Davon Dodson told the Post-Dispatch on his first day of work at the store. “We’re calling her she-ro.”

How great is this?!?  Kudos to this lady for exercising her constitutional right to self defense, and put this piece of garbage down.  Also, kudos to the store owner for supporting her.  Outstanding!!    🙂
