SAN RAMON, Calif. (KGO) -- Police say a jewelry store owner shot a robbery suspect inside his store and the suspect later died. The attempted robbery happened at the Gold N Treasures jewelry store, located at 2550 San Ramon Valley Boulevard.
It sounds like the robbers were caught off guard and found themselves looking down the barrel of a gun. One thing that they might not have known is that a lot of jewelry store owners have guns of their own.
There were four suspects and witnesses saw at least three of them running across San Ramon Valley Boulevard. One of them collapsed in the middle of the crosswalk, apparently after being shot by the jewelry store owner. Police said he died at the hospital. Now detectives are searching for the three suspects who may have gotten away in a white, four-door, 1990s model sedan.
"They're strong people. They're not going to let somebody hurt themselves or other people around them," said Kaitlyn Parvin, the store owner's daughter.
Kaitlyn says her parents, 61-year-old Everett and Wendy Parvin, were in the shop with the jeweler when it was being robbed. They've owned the Gold N Treasures jewelry store for 20 years.
"The people who came inside [had] a gun. They put the jeweler, Henry, on the floor. There was kind of a fight inside," said Boris Borissov, a family friend and fellow jewelry store owner.
Borissov said he spoke with the Parvins shortly after it happened around 4:40 p.m. He says he knew the Parvins had a gun and they were prepared to use it.
When Borissov was asked in his line of business if he felt like he needed a gun, he said, "It's almost impossible to protect yourself if you don't have a gun.

How long before California arrests the guy?
Another perp arrested.
We learn more about Kibrom Bairu, (the dead perp)
On his Twitter account, Bairu spoke of guns and money and referred to women with a derogatory word.
Spoke of guns and money? Well he learned a bit more about guns.
It seems the perps were Indians? Old school thugs?
I'm not a professional journalist, but years ago when I wrote for my High School newspaper, this story would have been tossed back at the writer, covered with red ink marks, circles and sarcastic comments.
Punk learned real fast. As he stumbled out in to the street, I have to wonder what his dying thoughts were?
From what I read, there was only one shot fired. I'm somewhat curious of shot placement of fatal single gunshot wounds.
Listen to the anchor’s lead-in, “A possible case of vigilante justice.” How is that objective reporting?
Some years ago in Rome there was an incident in a jewelers. Several members of the Italian national soccer team went with their leader, Luciano Re Ciccone, to buy an engagement ring. Re Ciccone was wearing an overcoat, and with his hand in his pocket, stuck it out as if it were a handgun. The propietor was not a “calcio” fan and didn’t recognize him, pulled his own weapon and shot him dead. The police determined that it was self defense and the jeweler was never even taken to the police station.
I would imagine that the guy CA want to arrest is the store owner. The argument will be that the jewelry store owner should have used psychotherapy to talk the robber down. Or, perhaps the owner should have handed over all his inventory because of economic justice.
