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.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
