Officials said Jonathan Murphy, a customer at the store, was shot and killed as the pair robbed it.

Rojas was shot by a mall patron who had a license to carry.

Officials said Prieto, who left the mall after the shooting, was found by police, asleep in a culvert after he wrecked his vehicle.

The DA's office said Rojas and Prieto were both indicted as habitual offenders because of their criminal history.

Both men are awaiting trial.
