Jewelry store robber on the run from Conroe

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

The search is on for a jewelry store robber out of Conroe, Texas.

Investigators say a man and woman walked into Wilkins Jewelers, asking to see some jewelry.  As the store owner's mother attended to them, another man walked in and told the store owner he wanted his ring cleaned, but then suddenly he jumped over the counter.

As the two wrestled, the couple restrained the mother.  At some point, the owner managed to get the attacker's gun and shot at the robbers.  He didn't hit any of them, but investigators caught the couple in the parking lot.

The other robber is still out there.

The store owner suffered some minor injuries.
