Around 3:20 p.m. on Monday, a business owner shot and killed an armed robber in Newark, NJ.

The suspect stormed into the local business wielding a loaded gun and ordered the owner to fill a backpack with money and gold. The suspect then said he would shoot the owner’s family members if the owner did not comply, authorities said.

At that point, the owner pulled his own gun and shot the suspect.

The suspect was taken to University Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, authorities said.
