Jewelry Store Owner Kills Robber Who Was Also Murder Suspect

posted on March 14, 2016

ABC7.com reports that a man who was killed while attempting to rob an Apple Valley, Calif., jewelry store was a person of interest in the murder of an elderly Apple Valley couple.

Keon Bailey, 20, was shot and killed by the owner of Leilani’s Jewelers while attempting an armed robbery of his store. The store owner’s action would appear to have put an end to a crime spree by Bailey: On Feb. 28, surveillance cameras caught him robbing Neil’s Donuts at gunpoint; on March 1, a family friend found the bodies of Luis Giuntini, 95, and his wife Rose, 92, inside their home, whereupon investigators found evidence that led them to name Bailey as a person of interest; and Sunday, evidence at the scene of yet another home invasion also pointed to Bailey. Items from the other Apple Valley robberies were found in Bailey’s possession. 

Bailey had been paroled from California state prison on Feb. 18.
