NEWARK, N.J. –-(Ammoland.com)- The owner of a northern New Jersey supermarket shot and killed a would-be robber who pointed a gun at him.
Essex County prosecutors say the shooting at the Neighborhood Deli Supermarket in Newark occurred around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. They say no charges have been filed against the store owner, who legally possessed the gun he used in the shooting, but would not release his name.
[How nice of them not to charge the victim, New Jersey law does allow owners of commercial property to have their own gun on the premises for self defense, but you cannot conceal and carry without the impossible to obtain CPL ]
Prosecutors say 46-year-old Newark resident Mark Robinson pulled out a gun shortly after he entered the Irvine Turner Boulevard store. They say he pointed the weapon at the store owner, who then fired at Robinson.
Robinson was taken to a hospital, but was pronounced dead there a short time later. The store owner was not injured.
Prosecutors say Robinson’s gun was found at the scene.
