(AP) — San Antonio’s police chief 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.”

The dead man’s name was not immediately released by authorities.
