A Newark, New Jersey, liquor store owner lived above his
business to keep watch on the place when closed. One morning, the
shopkeeper heard the alarm go off and went downstairs to
investigate, armed with his 12-ga. shotgun. He found a man
ransacking the store who threatened the owner with a large rock. The
owner told the intruder not to move and the would-be thief lunged at
him. A struggle ensued and the burglar was shot in the neck. The
attacker escaped, but was found by police and arrested a short time
later. The store's back window was broken and a hammer and crowbar
were found nearby. The intruder was charged with burglary and
assault. The owner was not charged.
