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.”

Want More “Me” Time? Wilkerson Will Get You There!

It was time. Teri Allen and her brother, Nick Pavlich, Jr., had been at the helm of Dearborn Jewelers of Plymouth in Plymouth, Mich., for decades. Their father, Nick Pavlich, Sr., had founded the store in 1950, but after so many wonderful years helping families around Michigan celebrate their most important moments, it was time to get some “moments” of their own. Teri says Wilkerson was the logical choice to run their retirement sale. “They’re the only company that specializes in closing jewelry stores,” she says. During the sale, Teri says a highlight was seeing so many generations of customers who wanted to buy “that one last piece of jewelry from us.” Would she recommend Wilkerson? Absolutely. “There is no way that I would have been able to do this by myself.”
