The Good Samaritan who was shot and killed by a robbery suspect at the Rolling Oaks Mall in San Antonio Sunday was at the mall with his wife having their wedding rings cleaned. A GoFundMe account set up for the family of Jon Murphy describes him as a “first-rate protector.”
At the scene of the shooting, where the suspect who reportedly shot Murphy before he was shot by another Good Samaritan, San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said, “What we have here is a robbery that went really, really bad.”
The GoFundMe page said, “This weekend, Jon and his wife Aimee used their rare day off to go to the mall together and get their wedding rings cleaned. While they were there, two horrible people decided to rob the store and threaten the safety of Jon’s wife and everyone else. Jon, the protector, lost his life making sure nobody else did.”
On Monday morning, the page had raised $5,570 of its $25,000 goal.
Mysa.com reports the second suspect who fled the scene Sunday was captured by Converse Police. The suspect’s name has not been released, but San Antonio Police say he is a 35-year-old Hispanic male. The suspect will be charged with capital murder and two counts of aggravated assault.
