Jeweler Killed in Colorado Shooting; Robbery Attempt Suspected

A vigil for Arguello, who was well-known in the community, was held on Saturday.




A jeweler was shot to death in Wheat Ridge, CO, during what authorities believe was an attempted robbery.

Peter Damian Arguello, owner of Peter Damian Fine Jewelry and Antiques, died in the incident at about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, CBS News reports. Police continue to investigate, and they believe robbery may have been the motive.

Arguello’s body was found in the parking lot behind the store, police said. Evidence of a shooting was found inside the business.

On Friday, police found a red Chevrolet Silverado they believed to be related to the crime. It was ablaze outside a tire business in Aurora, according to CBS News.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
