A jewelry store owner in Florida shot a teenage robbery suspect in the head as the youth fled, police say.

Michael Dacey, owner of the Treasure Coast Liquidators store in Jensen Beach, will not likely not be charged in the incident, Martin County Sheriff William Snyder said, according to WPEC-TV. (Watch a video about the shooting below.)

“In this circumstance, everything lined up to make this a justified shooting,” he was quoted saying.

Police say the suspect, 17-year-old Jakeem McMillan, has been hospitalized in grave condition.

McMillan allegedly entered the store and tried on some rings. He ran out of the store with $800 of merchandise and got into a Jeep, police say.

As the Jeep drove away, Dacey shot at the vehicle, authorities say. The vehicle then struck a truck.

If McMillan dies, Clark, as his accomplice, could be charged with murder, police say.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
