EAST NEW YORK, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A grocery store worker in Brooklyn is in custody after police say he shot and killed a man armed with a knife.

It happened just after 11 p.m. Monday at Rose Family Grocery Store in East New York.

Police say 25-year-old Edwin Candelario attempted to attack the worker with a knife during an argument.
