In a shocking incident, one person died, three were shot and two were injured when robbers who entered San Antonio shopping mall to rob ended in shooting people on Sunday.
Police Chief William McManus said, "two suspects robbed a jewellery store at the Rolling Oaks Mall on Sunday."
“What we have here is a robbery gone really, really bad,” McManus said.
After the suspects fled the store, a man, described by McManus as a “good Samaritan” tried to stop the two men.
"One of the robbers then fatally shot the man", McManus said.
"A second individual, who was carrying a licensed concealed weapon, then shot and wounded the robber who had killed the person who intervened", McManus said.
"The other robber fled the mall, firing his weapon and injuring a man and a woman. These two individuals, along with the injured robber, were taken to local hospital", said San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood.
"Two other people- a woman who complained of chest pains and a pregnant woman who had labor pains - were also taken to local hospitals", Hood said.
The condition of those injured in the incident has been not revealed by the officials.
McManus added that the police are still looking for the other robber who ran away fearing to get arrested.
“We searched the mall and we feel as confident as we can feel that the suspect is not in there,” McManus said.
