off-duty officer

An off-duty police officer is seen on a convenience store video shooting dead two would be robbers while holding his infant son. Sergeant Rafael Souza’s wife was with him in the pharmacy in Brazil when the robbery attempt went down.

Souza reacted quickly by shooting the two robbers before handing his son off to his wife.

PIX 11 reports that one of the suspected robbers pointed his gun at Souza who fired multiple shots while holding his child.

Souza reportedly told investigators he fired his service weapon because he feared the two suspects would shoot him and his family if they identified him as an officer.
