One person has been killed and six others injured during a robbery at the Rolling Oaks Shopping Mall in San Antonio this Sunday, according to police.
The San Antonio Police Chief, William McManus called it “a robbery gone really, really bad.”
Earlier this afternoon, two suspects attempted to rob a Kay Jewelers inside the mall. As they were escaping, they ran into two citizens outside who tried to intervene. One of the good Samaritans was shot and killed. The second had a concealed carry license and shot the suspect who had fired the gun.
One of the robbers got away after he fled through the mall and shot six people as he ran out. The other robber who was shot by the Good Samaritan, was transported to a local hospital, police said.
All six victims were transported to nearby hospitals. Their conditions were not immediately known.
While one suspect is in custody, San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor took to Twitter asking for the public’s help in finding the second shooter.
