Armed Citizen: Store Owner Halts Armed Robbery

Armed.  Safe.

A man armed with a gun entered the New Neighborhood Deli Supermarket in Newark, N.J. and attempted to rob the store. The store owner responded by retrieving a firearm and shooting the criminal, ending the attempted robbery.

An investigation revealed that the armed robber has a criminal record involving drug and weapons offences. A store employee told a local media outlet that he and the owner would not let fear stop them from working, stating, “To make a life, you have to work… Some people don’t want to work.” (, New Jersey, 01/14/15)
