10. 9-months pregnant woman shoots armed roober
A woman who pretended to have a gun while trying to rob a convenience store on St. Paul's East Side was shot by the store owner's pregnant wife.

A family member identified the clerk as Susana Khalil. She does not normally tend the Super USA store, owned by her husband Joseph Kalil. But her husband's cousin, George Elbassar, says Joseph ran out to do an errand Saturday evening, leaving Susana and their 2-year-old daughter on their own.

Police say that's when a woman, acting as if she had a gun inside a paper bag, tried to rob the store.

"She came behind the counter and tussled with Susana, who's 9 months pregnant," Elbassar said.

Elbassar said Susana was forced to use a gun her husband kept behind the counter.

"She did what she had to do to protect her kid and the kid in her stomach too," Elbassar said.

The robbery suspect was shot near the collarbone and was in stable condition at Regions Hospital Saturday night. Police have not released her name.


Exactly what I want, the way it should be... the honest people are armed and the criminals aren't.
