Off-duty military policeman shoots suspects during armed robbery
SAO PAULO, Brazil - Surveillance video captured the heroic actions of an off-duty military police officer as two armed robbers rushed into a Brazilian pharmacy.
Military policeman Rafael Souza was browsing the store with his wife and young child when the hooded gunmen entered.
According to a report from the Sun, one of the raiders, 24-year-old Jefferson Alves, pointed the gun at Sgt. Souza after he identified himself as a police officer.
Still cradling his young child in one arm, the cop goes up behind one of the assailants and shoots him at point blank range. He then chases after the second suspect and shoots him too.
Just before the video cuts off, Souza can be seen handing off the child to his screaming wife.
