In Victorville, California today, a good Samaritan was shot and killed by three men suspected of robbing a jewelry store. Allegedly, the man noticed the robbers escaping and attempted to follow them when one of the men shot at him. The man was taken to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later.
