New Jersey Gas Station Clerk Shot in Armed Robbery: Police

A robber shot a New Jersey gas station attendant in the stomach before stealing hundreds of dollars late Monday, police say.

The suspect went to the Delta gas station on Main Street in Ridgefield Park just before the business closed at about 10:30 p.m., pulled out a gun, demanded cash and shot the attendant once, police say.

After the shooting, the man took hundreds of dollars from the register and left in a dark sedan that was idling nearby. The car was last seen headed east on Brinkerhoff Street.

The attendant was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center. Police say said he was undergoing surgery. His condition was unknown.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Ridgefield Park Police at (201) 641-6400.
