Metro police on Friday confirmed that a jewelry store employee shot and struck a would-be robber in a shootout on Thursday.
Police said they were called to Huntington Jewelers on West Sahara near Tenaya Way at approximately 4:55 p.m. in response to a robbery.
Two suspects entered the business, one armed with a handgun, threatened an employee and demanded cash.
A second employee, who was armed with a handgun, confronted the suspects and gunfire was exchanged. The armed suspect was struck several times before he and the other suspect fled.
About 30 minutes later, a man identified as Antwjan McClelland was admitted to Sunrise Hospital with gunshot wounds to the arm. McClelland was arrested and booked in absentia. He faces charges of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, robbery and assault with a deadly weapon, among other charges.
The other suspect remains on the loose. He's described as a male adult standing 5'9" and weighing roughly 160 pounds. He was last wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, grey sweatpants and a white baseball cap and white shoes.
Police believe a third suspect may be involved as well.
Anyone with information on this incident is urged to call Metro's Robbery section at 702-828-3591 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
