A would-be robber and an armored car guard traded gunfire inside a Deptford shopping mall, killing one shopper and injuring another. The gunman also was killed and the guard was in critical condition. Shoppers ran screaming for the exits and took cover inside stores after the bullets sprayed across the second floor of the mall, in an atrium near an entrance to a bank. Caught in the cross-fire were a man who was dead at the scene and a 15-year-old girl who was wounded.

John Emil List, a churchgoing accountant who escaped capture for more than 17 years after killing five members of his family, was found guilty Thursday of five counts of first-degree murder. After nine hours of deliberation, a jury in Elizabeth, N.J., apparently rejected List's defense that a mental defect had caused him to shoot his wife, mother and three teen-age children in 1971.

The father of a 4-year-old boy who shot and killed his 6-year-old playmate after finding a loaded .22-caliber rifle in his parents' home has been arrested after officials found "multiple" unsecured weapons accessible to children in the New Jersey house. Anthony Senatore, 33, was arrested Monday evening and charged with several counts of endangering the welfare of children, the acting prosecutor in Atlantic County, Jim McClain, announced in a statement. According to the charges, which also include one count of being a disorderly person for allegedly allowing minors to access a firearm, Senatore had at least three weapons in his house in addition to the rifle that his son was holding on April 8 when he fatally shot his neighbor, Brandon Holt, in the head.
