    GOOD: Diamond Store Owner Shoots Back - Chandler, AZ

    Robber dead; Chandler store owner shot in face | Chandler Arizona News - Chandler News - Chandler, AZ news | eastvalleytribune.com



    An armed man attempting to rob a Chandler jewelry store Saturday died of a gunshot wound resulting from a gun battle between the robber and store workers, police said.

    The store owner was shot in the face during the gun battle, but he is expected to survive, said Chandler police Detective David Ramer.

    Police have not released the identities of anyone involved in the shootings.

    Two men entered the Christopher Diamond Jewelry store, located near the intersection of Chandler Boulevard and Loop 101, at 6:45 p.m. Saturday, Ramer said.

    One of the men was armed and told the store owner, his wife and their adult son that he was going to rob the store.

    When the store owner pulled a gun, the robber shot him, Ramer said.

    A resulting gun battle left the robber fatally wounded, but he was able to flee in a stolen pickup truck to the area of Broadway Road and Loop 101.

    The robbers’ vehicle came to a stop near the intersection and the second robber fled on foot while the wounded robber remained inside the truck.

    The wounded man was transported to an area hospital where he later died, Ramer said.

    The second robber was later arrested in the surrounding area, Ramer said.

    No one else was injured during the shootings, and witnesses helped police track the robbers’ vehicle by providing a description of the truck, Ramer said.
    Too bad the owner was shot in the face, but at least he isn't taking a dirt nap like the other guy.

    Anyone ever been to a Shane Co.? I would bet a pretty penny that there are several armed people in there. They are quite careless and will leave loose $5000 diamonds sitting on the counter and walk away. That's gotta indicate an extreme comfort zone. All the men have on suitcoats, so it's hard to see any printing. The girls always express interest in holsters, though.

    Two less robbery thugs out on the street. Sad though, one still managed to stay above ground.

    Stay armed...having a business store front is a rough road these days...stay safe!

    Too bad the owner was injured but now he can add

    There was a shootout here in Henrico County many years ago in a Jewelry Store ( Beverly Hills Jewelers).Two armed men just out of prison decided to rob the store, there was a shootout like something from the OK Corral that left the robbers laying there never to rob again. Know one else was hurt. I wish that I had a link to that story, it's a good read.

    Family spokesperson Nancy Uptain told ABC 15, "My brother-in-law is an incredible marksman he's a hunter and we're very gratefully for our gun rights because with him being able to have his own protection he was able to save his family."

    "These men came in and they had full intentions of killing the family and taking the jewelry," she said.
