Another one bites the dust, thanks to the gun culture
NEWARK, N.J. (TheBlaze/AP) â€” A Newark shop owner shot and killed an armed robbery suspect.
Authorities say 28-year-old Mustafa Sheffield of Newark entered the store Monday afternoon and ordered the owner to fill a backpack with money and gold while threatening to shoot the ownerâ€™s family.
Authorities say the shop owner, whose name was not disclosed, brandished his own gun and shot the suspect, who died at a hospital from a single gunshot wound.
No other injuries were reported in the robbery.
â€śNo charges have been filed so far, but authorities say itâ€™s likely that the matter will be reviewed by an Essex County grand jury,â€ť according to the Associated Press.
Unless there is additional evidence not reported by the AP, the incident appears to be a clear-cut case of self-defense.
