A man with a concealed handgun shot an armed robber who killed a good Samaritan during a confrontation at a San Antonio mall on Sunday, reports the Austin American-Statesman.

The man killed was 42-year-old Jonathan Murphy, who was unarmed but tried to stop two robbers outside of a jewelry store. The man with the concealed weapon saw the shooting and fired at one of the robbers, wounding him. His name was not released. Neither were the names of the robbers.

“It was obvious it was a very dangerous situation and that lives were being threatened and (the two robbers) were armed with weapons and … the good Samaritan with the (concealed handgun) license could have been injured as well,” said Doug Greene, a San Antonio police spokesman. “We just ask people to use their best judgment when they get into situations like this.”

Murphy was at the jewelry store with his wife when the robbery happened. He was killed and six others were injured in the mall shooting, which was first reported at 3:26 p.m.
