The only crime jewelry store owner Gilbert Dorland previously
experienced in his shop was the occasional shoplifter trying to
steal an antique watch. But he reacted quickly when two armed men
attempted to rob his store. The men, wearing bandannas over their
faces, entered Western Jewelry and Coin at 4:19 p.m. Both drew guns
and called out, "Nobody move." Dorland didn't heed that warning and
drew his own gun, firing at the masked bandits and injuring one.
Dorland and a friend who was in the store at the time of the
robbery attempt were not injured. The would-be robbers fled in a
dark green Jeep Cherokee. Police said that a man suffering from a
gunshot wound later pulled into a local hospital in a vehicle
matching that description.
