St. Louis 7-Eleven Employee Fatally Shoots Attacker

posted on April 26, 2017

A female worker at a South City 7-Eleven decided to take a smoke break around 4 a.m. Monday morning. That’s when a man approached her, armed with a pistol, and announced a robbery. However, the woman had other plans, and pulled her own gun.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the woman exchanged fire with the robber. The employee was shot twice in the leg, and is in stable condition at a local hospital. The robber wasn’t so fortunate. He was struck in the chest, arm and thigh, and was pronounced dead a short time later. 

Shane Mack, a man who lives nearby, walked to the store after hearing the commotion. Though he didn’t know the employee well, Mack said she was a mother who worked hard—adding that the suspect “deserved what he got” after drawing a gun. “It's unfair,” Mack said. “She ain’t done anything wrong. She was just taking a break and he attacked.”
