A store co-owner was left with critical injuries after being shot during a robbery at Reichman Jewelers in Oak Lawn, IL.

Three men with guns entered the store Friday afternoon and disarmed a security guard, CBS Chicago reported. They then smashed display cases and started grabbing merchandise. (Scroll down to watch a news video about the robbery.)

At that point, “A store employee emerged from the rear of the store and confronted the offenders who shot the employee twice,” police stated.

ABC7 reported that the victim was a co-owner of the store.

The gunshots reportedly hit the co-owner in the chest and wrist. He “is said to be in critical condition, but is speaking and is expected to survive,” ABC7 reported Friday.

Police are still looking for the suspects, who were wearing masks and drove away in a silver sedan.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
