*Sergeant Rafael Souza may be the closest thing to a real life superhero. Moments after he and his wife went inside a pharmacy to retrieve meds, two gun wielding robbers wearing hoods burst in. He wasted no time taking action, as you can see in the video below. Souza, with his child in one arm, came out guns blazing and shot the robbers dead.
Talk about multitasking!
The incident, captured on video by CCTV, happened 40km outside the city of São Paulo, Brazil.
Souza was off-duty, but apparently carries a weapon with him in the event of situations just like this.
On the video we see a man wearing a black hoodie walking in, Souza is nowhere to be seen…
But when he is, its already too late for the two robbers. He comes into camera view guns a-blazin’, and its clear the man in the white shirt, reported to be 24-year-old Jefferson Alves, who had pointed his gun at Souza once he ID’d himself as a cop, clearly does not escape being shot…at close range!
Gunfire is rapid as the baby is in Souza’s arms. You see the child’s mother ducking in the aisles; before reaching to Souza, who hands the baby over.
Souza leaves the camera frame again and shoots the other robber, later identified as 22-year-old Italo Creato.
It’s a sight to behold.
Here’s the dramatic video.
