The shopkeeper can first be found on level 1-2.

First, you will want to find a common attack robot (the one with the laser gun). Hack the robot and take control. Now make your way to the shop.

The shopkeeper will not attack until provoked, so be sure to get yourself setup in a good position to attack. The attack robot in the level 1 stages has very good range, so you don't need (or want) to be too close to the shopkeeper. My advice would be to stand kind of far back and near a doorway. Start shooting at the shopkeeper while simultaneously walking away. This will help you keep out of the range of the shopkeeper attack. The shopkeeper's attack also has a bit of spread to it, so the further away you are, the more likely you are to dodge his fire.

Keep running away while firing at the shopkeeper and you should be able to kill him before he kills you.

Now that he is dead, you can rob the store and get the associated achievement for that if you haven't gotten it already!

Train Set Gamer has pointed out that throwing bombs in the general direction of the Shopkeeper may be a safer method of killing the shopkeeper. If he survives the blasts and gets sucked into space, he will continue to take damage until he dies. Be aware that the merchandise may get sucked away too though.
