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 Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. 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. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
