Authorities are investigating the shooting death of a gas station attendant in North Jersey. Police discovered 29-year-old Daniel Pritchard, dying of a gunshot wound in the station's office, after responding to a panic alarm at a Verona gas station Tuesday evening.

Essex County Prosecutor Paula Dow says Boonton died at the Claridge Sunoco shortly after 5 p.m. He had been shot at least once, but authorities did not say whether he was shot inside the office or outdoors.
