Yesterday morning, a badass 60-year-old Asian shopkeeper lady fought back against an armed robber and scared him off with a gunshot.
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.

What did he do? He ran away, down Minnesota Street.
The investigation, police say, is ongoing.
Police did not use the term "badass" in their report, but we will.
