    Pregnant wife of store owner shoots would-be robber



    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.

    Susana Khalil was treated for minor injuries. Elbassar says she will be getting an ultrasound to make sure her unborn baby was not injured. In the meantime, he says she is very upset about the shooting.

    "Nobody wants anybody to get hurt, but when you are pushed against a wall, you are going to defend yourself," Elbassar said.

    Saint Paul, of course. I don't recognize the store name, but it sounds like a Somali or Muslim family owns it. Gee, who woulda thought. :o

    Yeah I've never heard of it either. Of course I'm rarely in that area.
