LAS VEGAS (Las Vegas Sun) — A suspect in the attempted robbery of Huntington’s Jewelry was arrested after he went to a hospital to seek treatment for multiple gunshot wounds.

He was identified by Metro Police Friday as Antwjan McClelland.

Around 4:50 p.m. on Thursday, McClelland and another suspect went into the jewelry store located at 7385 W. Sahara Ave. near Tenaya Way, Metro Police said, and demanded cash from the cash register.

McClelland, who police said was wielding a gun, was shot multiple times in the arm by an employee and the suspect returned fire. That’s when the two suspects fled.

About 30 minutes later, police said, McClelland was admitted to Sunrise Hospital with apparent gunshot wounds to his arm.

Police said the other suspect is still at large and described him as a black man standing about 5 foot 9, and weighing 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, gray sweatpants and a white baseball cap and white shoes, police said.

Police believe a third suspect may have been involved.

Police said McClelland was charged with attempted murder with a deadly weapon, robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and burglary while in possession of a firearm.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
