Sunday evening, at least one person was killed and three others reportedly shot after an attempted robbery at a San Antonio mall, according to reports.

The incident occurred when two suspects attempted to rob a Kay Jewelers store at Rolling Oaks Mall around 3:30 p.m. Sunday, according to San Antonio police.

One person tried to intervene and was shot and killed by one of the suspects, police said. Another individual at the mall shot one of the robbery suspects, police said, while the second robbery suspect shot two other people as he escaped from the mall.

Police later apprehended the suspect who fled the scene. “The suspect wrecked out in a stolen vehicle in the area … Two weapons were recovered,” the San Antonio Police Department said in a statement.

Both suspects are in custody and are each facing one charge of capital murder and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, police said.
