Police Release Suspect Descriptions in Jewelry Store Robbery
Crime

LAS VEGAS -- Police are investigating a robbery and shooting at the jewelry store near Western and Sahara. Shots rang out just after 1 p.m. while customers and employees were inside shopping.

Just after the lunch hour, two robbers tried to rob the place, and in the process, an employee was shot. The employee was rushed to nearby UMC, but there's no word on the patient's condition.

The Jewelers is a longtime jewelry store popular with locals and tourists alike, and police say the store was busy when the bullets started flying.

"I'd be pretty shaken if that happened if I was trying to shop for jewelry," said Metro Robbery Sgt. Paul Gambini.

One suspect is described as a 6'0" black male, 30 to 35 years old with a tall, medium build. He was wearing a black Washington Nationals ball cap, dark sunglasses, black t-shirt, grey jacket and grey pants. He was armed with a chrome semi-automatic handgun.

The second suspect is also described as a 6'0" black male, 30 to 35 years old with a tall, medium build. He was wearing a tan, fedora hat; dark sunglasses; long, tan coat; dark pants; tan shoes; and a long, black wig. He was armed with a long-barrel, chrome revolver.

Anyone with information is urged to call Metro's Robbery Section at (702) 828-3591 or Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
