Store owner beaten in robbery to retire
A jewelry store owner in Kensington who tried to defend himself from armed robbers said Wednesday that he will close his business, WUSA 9 reports.
Sandro Vendemmia, 77, told the TV station that he wants to sell his inventory and retire.
Montgomery County police said two people entered Vendemmia's store in the 3700 block of Howard Avenue Tuesday evening and attempted to rob him. A scuffle ensued and Vendemmia fired at least one round from his own gun.
Police believe he could have hit one or both suspects.
Vendemmia was injured in the attack. He was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released.
