An armed robbery suspect who was part of a brazen Wednesday afternoon jewelry store heist in San Ramon has died and been identified as Kibrom Bairu, 18, of Hayward, police reported.
San Ramon police say Bairu was one of four men who stormed the Gold N Treasures jewelry store on San Ramon Valley Boulevard about 4:30 p.m.
One of the victims, possibly a jewelry store employee, shot Bairu. Police will not say just who fired the gun. But the owner's daughter, Kaitlyn Parvin, told NBC Bay Area she doesn't know whether there were guns in the store, but her father would never do something he isn't sure he should do.
The suspects fled from the store and Bairu collapsed just outside the store. He was pronounced dead at San Ramon Valley Regional Medical Center by ambulance.
Suspect Krishneel Prasad, a 19-year-old Hayward resident, was arrested around 1:15 p.m. Friday near his home.
Prasad was booked at the Martinez Detention Facility on charges that incluce robbery, conspiracy and false imprisonment. His bail was set at $300,000.
On June 6, another suspect was arrested in connection to the robbery. Gregory Jamal Louis, a 22-year-old Hayward resident, was arrested in the 200 block of B Street in Hayward, according to police. Louis is charged with murder and three counts of robbery.
The case is currently under investigation. Anyone with any information is encouraged to call the San Ramon Police Department at 925-973-2700.
