A Good Samaritan was shot and killed Sunday while trying to stop a robbery inside Rolling Oaks Mall in San Antonio, Texas, according to San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.
Two men were attempting to rob a Kay Jewelers inside the mall around 3:30 p.m., when the Good Samaritan stepped in, according to Circa's affiliate KABB.
A bystander pulled out his concealed weapon and shot one of the suspects. The second suspect, however, fled the scene.
The shooting suspect was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
“It’s absolutely senseless. Absolutely senseless. This is the second time that a Good Samaritan was killed trying to intervene in a crime to help the victim,” McManus said. “It’s absolutely senseless.”
