An off-duty officer near São Paulo, Brazil, shot and killed two would-be robbers while holding his baby in his arms. The officer, Sergeant Rafael Souza, and his wife were inside a pharmacy to get medicine for their sick baby when the incident occurred. The Independent reports that 24-year-old Jefferson Alves allegedly pointed his pistol at Souza, at which time Souza drew his own gun and shot Alves “at close range.” Souza can then be seen moving in and out of the video searching for the second suspect, 22-year-old Italo Creato. Souza shoots Creato as well. In the middle of the video Souza’s wife can be seen crouching between aisles with her hands over her ears. Near the end of the video Souza’s wife can be seen stretching out her arms toward her husband, asking to take the baby. Souza passed the baby to his wife then returned to checking aisles to be sure there were no more suspects. Suspects Alves and Creato were both pronounced dead at the scene.
