Jury deliberations began Tuesday afternoon in the trial of an ex-con accused of killing a man during a 2015 convenience store robbery in Clairemont.

Ahmed Hassan Mumin, 34, faces murder, robbery and burglary charges, along with a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Eric Schade, 48, died at an Arco am/pm store on Balboa Avenue on April 16, 2015.

Two days later, officers tracked Mumin to an apartment complex on Winona Avenue in City Heights. A gunfight ensued, leaving the suspect with a gunshot to the abdomen, according to police and prosecutors.

During the trial, jurors heard from numerous witnesses, including the store clerk. He said he feared for his life as the robbery took place.

If jurors convict Mumin and find true a special circumstance allegation that the killing happened during the course of a robbery, he would face life in prison without the possibility of parole.

He’s additionally charged with two counts of attempted murder on a peace officer. He allegedly opened fire on two officers trying to take him into custody.
