An armed suspect who was shot and killed by the owner of the Antioch jewelry store he was allegedly trying to rob has been identified as a 20-year-old Antioch man.

David Michael Carter was fatally shot by the owner of Hardy Nix Jewelers at 3600 Delta Fair Blvd. after allegedly attempting to rob the store along with a second suspect around 4:30 p.m. Friday, authorities said.

Officers responding to reports of an armed robbery with shots fired found Carter lying on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

A customer inside the store who was caught in the crossfire was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, according to police. An update on the victim's condition was not available today.

The second suspect in the robbery ran from the scene and was last seen heading toward Kaiser Permanente Antioch Medical Center, just across the street from the jewelry store, police said.

Officers searched the area extensively but were unable to locate the suspect, who remains at large.

Hardy Nix Jewelers is a family-owned business specializing in jewelry and collectibles since 1947, according to its website.

Employees at the business were not immediately available for comment today.
