He had ‘the right to defend himself.’

A jeweler in Houston, TX, fired on three armed men who tried to rob his store, killing one and injuring another, police said.

The robbery suspects allegedly entered Your Jeweler on Tuesday afternoon and demanded jewelry and money, KTRK-TV reports. Police say they struck the owner with a handgun.

“He managed to recover a pistol and began firing at the robbers,”  said Senior Deputy Thomas Gilliland of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. “They, in exchange, fired back at him.”

The suspects fled, with one ending up at a local hospital with gunshot wounds. The body of another was found on a street about 6 miles away from the jewelry store. A third suspect is still at large.

Gilliland said that when the men came to rob the store, the owner had “the right to defend himself.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
