Texas Carry Permit Holder Stops Daylight Robbery In Mall

posted on January 24, 2017

“A robbery gone really bad.”

That was the description given by San Antonio Police Chief William McManus as two men attempted a daring robbery of a Kay Jewelers at Rolling Oaks Mall on Sunday afternoon. But they were confronted by two good Samaritans—one armed—who happened to be shopping at the same time.

McManus continued, “There was a fatality. One of the citizens who tried to intervene and stop the robbery was shot by one of the suspects.” However, the other citizen, who was carrying a handgun and his carry permit, shot one of robbers. After a brief exchange of gunfire, the second suspect escaped through the mall, firing as he ran. This first robber is in critical condition at a nearby hospital, while the second suspect—35-year-old Jason Matthew Prieto—was arrested later in the evening. Both face charges of aggravated robbery and capital murder in the death of the man who tried to stop the crime.
