Brazil police officer

An off-duty female police officer was in the right place at the right time when an armed thug attempted to rob a security guard in front of a kindergarten school in the central region of Suzano, a city in São Paulo, Brazil.

Katia da Silva Sastre, 42, and her daughters, ages two and four, had attended a Mother's Day luncheon at their kindergarten when Elivelton Neves Moreira, 21, approached the school security guard with his gun drawn on Saturday, May 12.

As Moreira pointed his gun at the older man, Corporal Sastre -- who happens to be an off-duty policewoman -- produced a weapon and fired 2 shots into Moreira's chest and one in his leg.

Surveillance video shows Corporal Sastre pull her weapon out of her tote bag, chamber a round and fire within 3 seconds.

The impact from the shots knocked Moreira out of his flip flops.

He fell to the ground screaming in pain and pleaded with her not to shoot him again (the video has no sound).

Corporal Sastre stopped shooting only when her gun jammed.

According to, the gunman was transported to a hospital where he died a day later.

Corporal Sastre is being hailed a hero for her quick actions.

“I didn’t know if he was going to shoot the kids or the mothers or the security guard at the school door,” she said after the incident.

Sastre, whose husband is a police lieutenant, was honored in a ceremony by Sao Paulo Governor Marcio Franca on Sunday.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    blewp shot down demon ... bye

  • Rico768

    hate he got killed, was thinking she could have shoot him in the leg or anywhere other than a lethal area
    but after reading Sandra's post I understand when the lady said she did not know if he would shoot the kids or parents.
    I could not imagine what it would feel like emotionally knowing you just killed someone. Crazy..

  • Trace da Ace

    well that is what he gets!!! Period....oh and Sandra.... this comment here "The impact from the shots knocked Moreira out of his flip flops.".......forgive me but I busted out laughing cause he what robber wears flips to a robbery anyways??? He would not have made if far...but good for the lady cop!!! She saved so many lives by putting his ass down like a dog!

  • SumthinSweeter

    wow... momma wasn't playing today. she seriously prevented a situation that could have escalated into harm against everyone around them. real women do real things and I applaud her for being so brave and protecting the other mother's, kids and the security guard whom looks as if he ran away after she shoot them hot one's in the robbers chest.

  • SumthinSweeter

    why? just why even go there? Smh.

  • Tessa Long

    The lady with the kid in the hot pink jacket was about to leave her damn kid at first. Plus ol girl fired off that round with the same two people in the line of fire. The kid definitely had her guardian angel that day...

  • Tessa Long


  • Tammie Reed

    He didn't care zero f*cks about all the moms and kids standing outside either! I wonder if it would have been a different scenario if all men was standing out there? Target women with kids because it's easier but he learned the hard way didn't he!

    I also wonder what his family is thinking now cause he is deceased and not coming back. I always think what is on the mind of a criminal that makes them do such irrational things....sigh!

  • SpillyNillie

    I noticed the same thing! My child's arm would've been damn near severed from me pulling her so hard. The child just stood there Jesus. Poor thing was unaware of the danger she was in.

  • Simone

    Me too!

  • Tahj

    Let me tell you something right now!!! THAT WOMAN WAS EVERYTHING!!!!! BUT WAIT Did yall see the lady almost leave her daughter LOL and the lady in the red car ahahahahaahh SMH!!! OMG... Hey he asked for that! I aint never seen a gansta in thong flip flops LOL

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    I didn't read the title of this, I just watched the video. I didn't realize he died....oooops lol

  • Tammie Reed

    I've seen grown ass men with women with them put them in harms way on video clips! What cowards! I would quickly divorce or break up with a guy after that!

    Who wants a damn whimp? That mom was dead wrong and I get it, your not thinking rationally but still, my kids are my everything, I would have nut up about mine!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    These people look for every opportunity to "go there", that's why.
    They can't help themselves.

  • Vegas1989

    You made me bust out laughing and scroll up....I'm done for today

  • SumthinSweeter


  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark


  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Wow. That's a bad chic right there.

  • TheyDontHearMeTho

    Right in perfect view of the camera of course...everything looks so damn staged now a days

  • PK


  • Ejai

    I wouldn't exactly call it a feel good story. The man did die....regardl regof the fact he was robbing someone.....not good to hear this man died.

  • zero options

    Give her a medal!

  • James Hudson

    She didn't have no business taking that mans life

  • Alextra Ballard

    What in thee hail!!!!!

  • Meme

    Yep first thing I noticed too that woman forgot she had a child for a split second, not good ?

  • MsVAllDay

    LOL ya'll are hilarious! This fool pulls out a gun right in front of a bunch of kids and ya'll say she didn't have to take his life! WTF I'm so confused! He didn't give a fuck about his life or the lives of those around him.

  • MsVAllDay

    She's a G!

  • MsVAllDay

    I was like how the hell you almost leave your baby! Real parents grab the babies first. That was some bullshyt.

  • Dkwitty

    Robbing women and children with no regard for their lives meant he deserved death. He is a coward who picked on the weak and vulnerable in society. I don't feel sorry for him at all.

  • Dkwitty

    I can't believe some people feel sorry for him that he died ? you pull out a gun infront of women and children then you deserve to die. He was the lowest of low. Goodbye to that trash.

  • Dkwitty

    She made sure that gun was right at his chest before she fired though.

  • T3

    Exactly ???

  • Ms. Cree

    If you try to rob anyone in my immediate family, the same probably will happen. Yes, a man died. The same man who was willing to cause harm in a school zone. IJS. People work hard to achieve the desires of their heart and want to be at peace when they send their children to school to learn. Playing victim and not fighting back ish is dead. You better be prepared especially if you watch the news.

  • Ejai

    I didn't ask you to feel sorry for him or say that you did. I said someone losing their life is not a feel good story. Point blank period

  • Quitedeliteful

    Glad to hear that this ended well -- nobody get hurt except for the deserving one...

  • Quitedeliteful


  • LivingLife_BeingPositive

    But he pulled a gun with children present she didn't mean to kill him she was protecting those children cause this story could easily read 5 kids dead 2 in critical condition ... I'm just saying

  • Quitedeliteful


  • MJ

    Thank you??

  • Quitedeliteful

    Ole Billy Badass thought he could just run up on a crowd of women and children waving a gun and there would be no consequences! Young and Dumb. Do not pull out a gun threatening to shoot somebody if you are not prepared to take a bullet and possibly lose your life instead. He got what he deserved.

  • Rere

    He had no reason being at a school with a gun??

  • Shawty

    Good job lady. No one was hurt (other than the perpetrator) and she is deemed a hero. Possibly saved the lives of moms and kids including her own.

  • Rere

    He put himself in that situation, he should not have been there. Period.

  • Ejai

    I never said that he didn't put himself in that situation. ?

  • MJ

    If I’m gonna shoot someone who has a GUN?! I’m shooting to kill.

  • Rere

    He would not have died if he didn't go there with I'll intentions?

  • Dahlia8765

    I knew it was Brazil even before i scrolled down. I just saw the flip flops and i knew. Smh they are crazy violent down there. It's scary.

  • Ejai

    Well that's kind of obvious....because he tried to rob someone the effect was him getting shot. Again someone dying is not a feel good story. Keep trying

  • Rere

    It was a feel good story to me?. The outcome could have been parents & kid's being shot & killed BUT instead he was? The end.

  • Rere


  • Ejai

    Bless your heart! Lol

  • James Hudson

    Look, she could have shot him in the leg or anything but yet she aims for vital organs are you kidding me?

  • James Hudson

    At the end of the day 2 wrongs don't make it right, she had no right to take that mans life

  • James Hudson

    She was OFF duty she had no right to be there with her gun let alone steal this man's breath.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    OK, now, SHE DID THAT. Take note ladies: You don't have to mess up your weave or wrinkle your skirt by shooting the shyt out of somebody trying to rob or hurt you. Just say a little prayer and get to poppin'.

    I think I told y'all before that my friend was robbed by a guy who was standing behind him in Sao Paulo. The guy walked up, put his hands in my friend's back pocket, pushed a gun into his back, and took his wallet.

    He then casually walked away.

    It was in BROAD DAYLIGHT.

    But this video shows why more women need to carry guns, especially in the U.S..

  • brooks hill

    you are a troll... right. until he drops the gun,he remain a threat. you shoot until he is no longer a threat. he brought a gun to a gun fight. he paid for it. GOOD.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    One less crazed criminal on the streets

  • Peter Piper ATL

    He had a death wish...

    And his wish was granted.

    Now who said wishes don't come true??

  • brooks hill

    I feel good about it. the cost of being stupid and having a gun.

  • brooks hill

    she was not wrong. she was within the law. he was not,so justice served. you weep for the criminal. it keeps you warm at night. i salute the lady for standing up to predators who rob women and kids. i sleep well at night too.

  • Rere

    She has a license to carry & she is obligated to protect her child

  • ZZZ

    That person has so many aliases on this site.

  • WillyWonker

    You’re stupid... Lolol He got what he deserved!!! You play stupid games you win stupid prizes... as an OFFICER she is allowed to carry her weapon and enforced the law in life or death situations... good for her ...

  • SumthinSweeter

    Ooooooh. Had no idea.

  • Arii

    Maaaaan Fuuuuuu— that dude. He needed to die. You don’t walk up to a group of kids with a gun. He didn’t die fast enough as far as I’m concerned.

  • BlackMenHATEBlackWomen


  • BlackMenHATEBlackWomen

    Situations like this are the only time I will EVER thank a white woman. Their racist asses and black men can have each other. Alfredo Pastario learned TA-DAY!

  • Strip Club Veteran

    Well deserved.

  • xenaD

    Not only that, it was NOT loaded at first! I rewatched it from several different angles... she put the clip in! Her instincts were clearly to Protect here... not intentionally kill (like some officers, but that’s another story for another day ?????) but to actually protect women and children!

  • Malcom Flex

    Play with guns get shot dead AF!! Thug deserved it.

  • Malcom Flex

    TF!! He smooth pulled a gun on women and children the punk thug deserves his dirt nap!!

  • Logan Roberts

    Welp ???

  • BaileyBlue17

    She did shoot him once in the leg, but as a police officer; your are trained to shoot at center mass which means the chest. It's shoot to kill, not shoot to maim. She did what was necessary to diffuse the situation. It's a shame he had to die as a result.

  • Rere

    Exactly, she was actually protecting & serving justice. I applaud her????

  • Jussjess25

    Huh, a murder brandishes a gun in front of children where a gunfire could have broke out, killing innocent people.. and you feel bad for the dead man who mad a disgusting decision?? Of which I can bet my life hes made before.?? Wasted energy Ehaji, that man would have more then likely killed someone.

  • Jussjess25


  • Jussjess25

    So what was she suppose to do james?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Look at God, won't he do it. Good riddance. I didn't know he died, but if that is accurate reporting, good. He walked up so brazen and bold with no remorse or regret. He deserved the endured agony.

  • Dkwitty

    It is to most people ??

  • Layah Jhene

    This is what you call swift Judgement.

  • Layah Jhene

    God took his life. People get popped all the time and don't die. Bet his ass didn't expect that to happen

  • Malcom Flex

    Had to take back that upvote. Why you gotta diss sistas bringing up weave?

  • Layah Jhene

    Lmao Yaaaaaassss!!! They was not messing around

  • Layah Jhene


  • Dainese

    But black folks getting shot out here everyday for breathing. Give me a break!

  • Dainese

    She did shoot him the leg...

    ......And the chest.

  • Dainese

    Bravo. Bravo. Commendable.
    Actually killing a CRIMINAL and not an unarmed, handcuffed laying on the ground somebody.

  • Patricia

    not today, devil!

  • Patricia

    well, they were standing around talking. she could have been in the middle of conversation not fully aware child was back in front of her from talking/playing w friends. i agree God protected protected them both bc they were right behind that man w/ bullets flying

  • I wanna suck your dick nìgga

    That what the fuck he get ??????

  • sunni_daze

    I laughed so hard. She put 2 in that ass, and the car paused so she could get the gun and calmly pulled off.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Sad to hear of a death but I'm glad her quick reactions saved the children and innocent adults.

  • Karen Brady

    Just say a little prayer and get to poppin'. teee heee

  • Karen Brady

    I just saw the flip flops and i knew. tee hee heeee

  • Roxie Moxie

    Oh well. You live by the gun, you die by it. No sympathy for the perpetrator! She did what she was supposed to. A feel good story, indeed.

  • D735

    This is the kind of stories I like to hear from police officers. She did the right thing. Any idiot who's willing to Rob someone like that when they're chilldren around there's no telling what he would have done. Those children were in danger.
    If I had a license to carry and my child were out there I would have shot first and asked questions later.
    Yes I would have been willing to go to jail to protect my child.

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    now this much i agree with

  • missmiami305

    Kudos to her ??

  • itsjismemelly

    sorry but that's good for him

  • Tessa Long

    I still remember some of the best words of wisdom givin to me from the love of my life...." Don't mess with a ninja that'll beat you to the car!!!" Lol will never forget that info words to live by!!!

  • Marcia Cowart

    Who the hell robs any place with flip flops on? That's all I got.

  • MadGyalGem

    Man listen... that was a good shot bc had he moved towards the right the lil girl would have gotten SHOT. Man..... this type of shit scares me. Cuz sometimes you mean to be a "s(hero)" and shit turn into tragedy.

  • Chuck

    I watched this video five times and it's funny af to see how terrified the people were. The lady jumped in the car and the driver drove off. The lady was about to run and leave her daughter; thought about it and grabbed her and ran. After the shooting, the guy that stood there and watched. Funny af! Glad the cop was there and killed this bastard!

  • McKay

    As I keep reading this person's comments, I couldn't agree with you anymore when you said... "You're Stupid" This person really is stupid and cannot grasp the basics. If this stupid person was in the same situation would they still be singing the same tune??

  • Pebbles

    Are thy serious? So the cop that hid outside of the school was fired for hiding and doing nothing. Now you are saying she should have done nothing. Seriously?

  • HaycH

    This Pebbles from diego?Mombasa now??
