NYC authorities announced the arrests of a NJ man charged with a fatal shooting of a Brooklyn New York Deli worker in mid-December during an attempted armed robbery. 

According to police, Mr. Ricardo Senatus of Newark was arrested Tuesday. He faces multiple counts of murder, robbery and criminal possession of a weapon for his role in the fatal incident on Dec. 14.

NYC Police said at approximately 7:30 p.m., Senatus allegedly tried to steal cash from the register at the Flatbush Deli Corp, near the intersections of Flatbush Avenue and Caton Avenue in Prospect Lefferts Garden.

Police say the employee behind the register, Mr. Fedhi Moosa, 20, defended himself, leading to the gunman opening fire.

A bullet struck Moosa and medical professionals pronounced him dead at the scene.

The fatal shooting remains under investigation.
