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 owner’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.

No charge shave been filed so far, but authorities say it’s likely that the matter will be reviewed by an Essex County grand jury.
