EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KMOX) – Two strippers escaped injury early Tuesday morning when two armed criminals tried to rob them outside an east-side club.

Police tell us the two were leaving the Hollywood Showclub on Bunkham Road when they were approached by two gunmen.

There was a commotion loud enough to be heard inside and the club’s DJ came out to see what was happening.

That’s when at least one of the suspects opened fire. A handful of shots were fired, but no one was hit.

The would-be robbers fled, but didn’t get any money. They fled in a silver Mustang.
