A suspet was shot during an armed jewelry store robbery in which Rolex watches valued at $350,000 were stolen.

The crime took place at about 3:20 p.m. on May 6 at A&M Custom Jewelry in Town Center mall in Cobb County, GA.

Marquavis Wilson, 24, was shot in the stomach by a security guard, and the suspects fled with several watches, according to the Jewelers’ Security Alliance. Wilson was later dropped off at a hospital and arrested, and police are searching for the other two suspects.

Shoppers “were running in panic and finding hiding places in the mall after shots were fired,” JSA reports. The mall remained closed through the rest of the evening.

An employee reportedly suffered a superficial injury during the robbery. Police believe the employee was hit in the foot by shrapnel amid the gunfire, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

During the robbery, the suspects “trained their weapons on at least five employees,” at which point the security guard fired at them, according to the Journal-Constitution. It’s not known whether the suspects returned fire.

That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm.
