    The Velasco's were both hit by shrapnel when two gunmen attempted to rob the Kay Jewelers at Rolling Oaks Mall on Sunday.

    Both were released from the hospital and are at home recovering.

    Jonathan Murphy was the "Good Samaritan" who tried to protect his wife and was shot and killed during the robbery. Another shopper with a concealed weapons license shot one of the robbers.

    Jose Luis Rojas is in critical condition at San Antonio Military Medical Center after being shot during the robbery, while the second suspect, Jason Matthew Prieto, 35, was captured following a car wreck in Converse. Investigators say he crashed a stolen silver car near Copper Gate and Loop 1604.

    The accident happened about twenty minutes after the attempted robbery and shooting.

    Both men face charges of capital murder and aggravated robbery.
