COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - A teen trying to rob an espresso stand in northern Idaho met his match in a gun-toting barista.
Police say the 17-year-old confronted Sunshine Espresso owner Michelle Cornelson with a gun Wednesday morning, demanding all her money.
Cornelson has been hunting since she was a girl and says she remained calm as a customer pulled up to the other side of her kiosk in Coeur d'Alene, distracting the teen.
Cornelson quickly whipped out her 9mm Kel-Tec pistol, which was a Christmas present￼ from her husband. That scared off the teen so Cornelson could call police.
A sheriff's deputy was nearby after picking up a beverage at the stand and caught the suspect. The teen was later taken to a juvenile detention center.
