A business owner shot and killed a robber Monday in Newark.
Around 3:20 p.m., the suspect walked into an unidentified business in the 500 block of Central Avenue in Newark with a loaded gun and a backpack, according to the Essex County Prosecutors Office and Newark police.
The suspect announced a robbery, and ordered the owner to fill the backpack with money and gold. The suspect said he would shoot the owners family members if the owner did not comply, authorities said.
But the owner fought back. He pulled his own gun, and shot the suspect.
The suspect was taken to University Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, authorities said.

Nah, you’re not going to shoot my family members.
A happy ending.
Owner is screwed.Can’t do this in the People’s Republic of New Jersey.Even worse if he used hollow points!
No, according to the law of liberals you have to die first before you can legally defend your life. For example: George Zimmerman. He only allowed Trayvon to smash his nose and head in before he defended himself which is illegal. He should have waited until Trayvon cracked his skull open like an eggplant which would have then allowed his brains to spill out causing his death. Only *then* would it have been legal and acceptable to liberals to defend his life, but as long as he used a legally purchased, licensed, registered firearm with a trigger lock and a 2 bullet magazine
Looking at Google Maps, there's only one business on that block where someone would demand "money and gold". It's one of those "We Buy Gold" joints. An ironic side note, on their sign it says, "Need Cash Fast?".
The left must be sad the robber is dead, one less Democrat voter
Oh no, the dead perp will continue to vote straight “D” ticket, you can be sure of that.

No, the left actually gained 5 democrat votes. It’s simple maff yo.
A “Gun Free Zone” sign would have prevented the event. The business owner should be prosecuted.
Don’t you just love a story with a happy ending?
No I think that’s too severe. I think the proper thing to do is to ask him nicely not to hurt you
Couldn’t he have tried nodding first?
Well there's a stupid career move. When you threaten a real man's family, your actual message is understood as: "kill me as soon as possible".
Prosecutors identified the alleged thief who was shot while trying to rob a Newark store on Monday as a 28-year-old city resident who was released from prison three months ago, officials said.
Mustafa Sheffield allegedly entered Top Dollar, a cash for gold store.
Sheffield was charged with three counts of robbery in March 2004 and served nearly nine years in East Jersey State Prison in Avenel, according to state corrections records.
He was released March 21, according to records.
Cursum perficio - My journey is over.
Probably one less Obama voter as well.
what is with the saved head and beard I see on many thugs and criminal types?
Or he could have simply shot the gun outta the bad guy's hand.
Right! They do that all the time in movies!
After the male pattern baldness sets in, they shave their heads so they won’t look like Bozo the Clown.
