Jeweler Fires Gun During Christmas Eve Attempted Robbery

A Colorado Springs, Colo., jeweler narrowly escaped an attempted robbery upon closing his store on Dec. 24.
 
According to the police report, at approximately 10 p.m., a masked man approached owner Ed
McNulty at McNulty Jewelers and threatened him with a weapon in his
pocket. The suspect allegedly told
McNulty his family was in danger if he didn’t
comply with his demands.
 
McNulty told the suspect to back off and revealed that
he was armed. The owner also
pursued the suspect as he attempted to flee. The
thief threw rocks at
McNulty, who suffered a minor injury to his hand,
according to police.
 
The masked man jumped in a white Ford F-150, almost hitting
McNulty.
In response,
McNulty fired his weapon twice, believing he hit the
suspect’s truck twice.
 
Police do not know if the would-be thief was injured and are continuing an investigation.
