WASHINGTON - An Israeli man was shot dead Thursday night at his jewelry store in Westport, Connecticut, the local television channel News 8 reported.
According to the report, the 65-year-old jeweler was pronounced dead at the hospital. The victim's associate, also an Israeli national, was critically hurt in the shooting, but was able to alert the police. His condition later improved and was defined as stable.
Gunman caught on camera
The news channel cited the police as saying that the incident did not appear to be a random robbery, and that the victims were targeted specifically. They asserted that the gunman had previously been to the store – either as a buyer, or pretending to be a buyer – and that he was buzzed in through two security doors. The business admitted clients by appointment only.
Despite the fact that the killer was caught on the store's security cameras, the police have yet to apprehend a suspect. The authorities estimate that the gunman acted alone.
