The suspect from a Friday afternoon fatal armed robbery at an Arlington jewelry store remains at large and dangerous, police said.

The Arlington County police department’s homicide unit is investigating the 4 p.m. homicide and robbery on the 3200 block of Columbia Pike.

A 52-year-old Herndon man’s family alerted police when he failed to return home after his shift at the jewelry store.

Officers found him in the store with a fatal injury just before midnight on Friday. The man was declared dead at the scene. Police are not releasing what sort of injury it was, spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said.

It is not clear what was taken, Mr. Sternbeck said. Officers are taking inventory of the store as part of the investigation.  

Surveillance video captured the suspect entering the store wearing a neon traffic vest. He is described as a black male in his 50s, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall.  

Police ask anyone with information to call Detective Richard Conigliaro at 703-228-4193.
