San Antonio chief calls robbery death ‘senseless’

SAN ANTONIO (AP) – The police chief in San Antonio, Texas, is describing the death of a man who was shot as he tried to stop two men after they robbed a jewelry store at a mall as “absolutely senseless.”

Police Chief William McManus says the “good Samaritan” came upon the two robbers as they fled a jewelry store at Rolling Oaks Mall on Sunday. The man was shot by one of the robbers. That robber was then shot and injured by another individual, who had a licensed concealed handgun. The second robber fled the mall, firing his weapon and injuring two others. Two women suffered non-shooting injuries. Police are still searching for the second robber.

McManus described the incident as “a robbery gone really, really bad.”
