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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
