(Fullerton, CA) – Orange County Supervisor Shawn Nelson (Fourth District) honored long-time Fullerton jewelry store owner Ismael “Ish” Gomez with his 2012 “Second Amendment Award for Heroism” in recognition of the incredible courage he displayed in saving the lives of his two employees last month during an attempted take-over robbery by five armed suspects. Mr. Gomez’s heroism resulted in one suspect being hospitalized, the other four in jail and earned accolades from friends and professional associates for protecting the lives of his imperiled employees during a dramatic hand-to-hand, bullet-firing confrontation against violent criminals. A reminder of the struggle remains evident in the mirror behind Supervisor Nelson and Mr. Gomez weeks after the altercation.
