Newly released video shows a deadly shootout that occurred in December when robbers targeted John Fish Jewelers in Las Vegas.

Two masked robbers entered the store just before it was set to close, NBC News reports. One of them forced store owner John Fish to a safe while the other forced Fish’s brother Steven and a customer to the floor.

Fish’s wife was also at the store, and she went nearby to get help from the store’s bench jeweler, a concealed carry gun owner named Pedro Torres.

When Torres arrived at the front door, one of the gunmen began shooting at him, and Torres shot back, NBC News reports. One of the suspects died.

Torres was shot three times but survived.

The other suspect got away but was arrested recently.

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.”
