LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A driver plowed into the storefront of a Henderson music store in an accident that left one man dead Monday afternoon, said a Henderson Police spokesperson. 

A customer was inside Anthem Hills Music store located at 10345 South Eastern Avenue near Horizon Ridge Parkway when he was struck by the vehicle who accidentally drove into the business at 3:50 p.m., according to public information officer Peña. 

The victim, identified by the Clark County Coroner's Office as 81-year-old Jerome Lloyd Eisenberg, was transported to St. Rose Hospital in critical condition but he later died of his injuries. The driver of the vehicle was not hurt. 

Outside Anthem Hills Music, flowers were laid for Eisenberg, who friends say went by “Jerry.”

“He’s an angel now, we’ve got him on our side watching us,” a friend said.

Eisenberg lived in Anthem and used to play pool with a group of friends at the Anthem Center, they said.

But on Monday, July 3 their pal, Jerry never showed up.

“Suddenly on Monday, he was missing and we didn’t have any idea why,” his friend, Ed Rucinski said.

His friends said Eisenberg had been taking mandolin lessons at Anthem Hills Music and were heartbroken over his untimely death.

“A really sad ending for such a nice guy and I’d like to see somebody held accountable for this,” friend Pamela Patomson-Winger said.

“He was a real good guy, probably one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met,” Raymond Patomson said. 

Henderson police officers are continuing the investigation.
