A Rare Legitimate DGU - In New Jersey of All Places
--(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.
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.
