The owner of Marco Jewelers in Stamford, CT, was killed during a robbery on Saturday.

A customer entered the store at about 2:45 p.m. and “observed evidence of a crime,” Stamford police said in a Facebook post. Police and paramedics responded and found owner Mark Vuono with a gunshot wound.

Paramedics pronounced Vuono dead at the scene. He was 69.

Police are still investigating the crime. They are asking anyone with information to get in touch at 203-977-4417.

News 12 Connecticut reports that Vuono was in the jewelry business for over four decades. Members of the community have placed flowers outside the store at Sixth and Summer streets.

“It’s horrible. He was just a beautiful guy,” said Michael Lombardo, a longtime customer of the store. “My hope is they catch these people.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
