Two suspects are in custody after a San Antonio mall shooting that killed one and injured several more.
What began as a robbery in a Kay Jeweler store at Rolling Oaks Mall on Sunday turned deadly, after a Good Samaritan reportedly tried to stop the robbers as they fled the scene. One of the suspects shot and killed that man, Jonathan Murphy, of Cibolo, Texas.

Another witness, who had a concealed carry license, fired back and shot one of the suspects, who as of Monday morning was in critical condition at a nearby hospital. That suspect has not yet been identified. A second suspect was apprehended later Sunday after he ran through the mall firing shots before stealing a would-be getaway car. Jason Prieto, 34, was captured by authorities after he crashed the stolen car.
Both suspects are facing preliminary charges of capital murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to a police statement obtained by CBS News.
“What we have here is a robbery gone really, really bad,” Police Chief William McManus told a San Antonio CBS affiliate, describing the deadly shooting as “absolutely senseless.”
