Officials now say that one person was killed and five others were injured in an attempted robbery at the Rolling Oaks Mall in San Antonio, Texas, on Sunday.

The robbery happened at the KAY Jewelers store in the mall, Leslie Garza, San Antonio mayor’s director of communications, told NBC News.

According to San Antonio police, two people tried to stop the two suspects as they were fleeing the store.

One of the suspects shot and killed one of the Good Samaritans. The other Good Samaritan, who has a concealed carry license, shot and wounded that suspect, police said.

The other suspect then fled through the mall, shooting as he ran, police said.

At least two people were shot and three others were injured, Garza said. City and police officials had previously said seven people were injured.

The conditions of those injures were not immediately known.

Garza said police are searching for the second suspect.

“Today’s deadly shooting at Rolling Oaks Mall is a tragedy for everyone involved and all of us affected,” San Antonio Mayor Ivy R. Taylor said in a statement posted on Facebook. “As SAPD and Live Oak Police continue to search for a second suspect, ensure the safety of mall employees and shoppers and clear the scene, I ask everyone to remain calm, vigilant, safe and report any info you may have about the suspect who remains at large.”
