Anne Arundel County police have identified the man who was shot and killed early Tuesday by the owner of a Laurel business that police say he had come to rob.

Josue Alberto Angel, 29, of the 12000 block of Carland Place in Laurel, was killed around 3:30 a.m. after a struggle with the 48-year-old owner of a Quest gas station in the 3400 block of Laurel Fort Meade Road. According to police, Angel came into the store, implied that he had a weapon and announced a robbery. Angel was shot in the parking lot, police said. The property is also the site of a Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robbins ice cream store. The owner has not been charged.

Prosecutors are working with police as they investigate the circumstances of the shooting, said Kristin Fleckenstein, spokeswoman for the Anne Arundel County State's Attorney's Office.
