Concealed Carry Permit Holder Stops Deadly Shooter At San Antonio Mall

Rolling Oaks Mall officials have announced the mall will reopen at 12 p.m. on Monday following Sunday’s deadly robbery, News4SA reports.

SAN ANTONIO – Police arrested a second suspect accused in taking part in a jewelry store robbery that turned deadly Sunday afternoon.

According to a San Antonio Police Department spokesperson, the second suspect was captured following a car wreck in Converse. Investigators say he crashed a stolen silver car near Copper Gate and Loop 1604.

The accident happened about twenty minutes after two suspects tried to rob a jewelry store inside Rolling Oaks Mall. A shopper who tried to stop the robbery was killed by gunfire.

Another bystander who is licensed to carry a concealed weapon shot and wounded one of the suspects. The second robber got away and is believed to be the same person who wrecked the stolen car.

Converse police officers took him into custody, recovered two weapons and called SAPD to inform them of the arrest. The 35-year-old suspect faces a charge of capital murder and two counts of aggravated assault. Police have not released their identities.

SAPD says the first suspect remains in critical condition at San Antonio Military Medical Center. He faces the same charges in the case.

The Good Samaritan killed in the robbery was later identified as Jonathan Murphy. A GoFundMe page, which has not yet been confirmed to be associated with Murphy’s family, described Murphy as a retired Marine and a manager at a car dealership. The page said Murphy and his wife were at the jewelry store to get their wedding bands cleaned.
