Police are still looking for the robber who shot and seriously wounded a store clerk on North Broadway late Thursday afternoon.
The shooting occurred at about 5:20 p.m. at Camelus Gold and Leather, 1430 N. Broadway, police said.
The robber came into the store, demanded jewelry and shot the 43-year-old man in the right side of his chest, then left with an estimated $28,000 in gold rings and gold necklaces, police said.
The clerk was taken to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis in serious condition, but police said Friday that he is expected to survive.

"You don't get them very often with shots fired," Capt. Brent Allred said of the robbery. "Most of it is 'weapon indicated.'
"It is unusual here."
Witnesses told police the shooter is a Hispanic male in his mid-20s, about 5-feet-2 and 175 pounds. He wore a white T-shirt.
There was an eagle tattoo on his right hand and tattoos on the inside of his arm.
He left in a maroon SUV that resembled a Pontiac Aztek.
Two other employees in the store were not injured, police said.
