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.”

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
