Metro Nashville police said Chelsea Earp, 26, pulled a semi-automatic handgun out of her white hoodie after entering the store and demanded money out of the register.

The owner’s wife, who was behind the counter at the time of the robbery, grabbed a revolver and followed Earp out of the store. Earp reportedly turned around and fired at the woman, hitting a glass door, police said.

Authorities said Earp left in a white Honda Accord with a spare tire on the rear passenger side. The owner reportedly recognized Earp, based on a friendship he has with her father, police said.

Earp was charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated assault. Her bond was set at $100,000.
