A man has been fatally shot and killed whilst attempting an armed robbery on a group of parents. The gunman, now named Elivelton Neves Moreira, 21, approached a group of mothers as they collected their children from a special Mother’s Day event at their school in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
With his gun pointed firmly at the group of panic-stricken parents and children, Moreira demanded the group hand over their money. However, his stunt quickly turned sour when one mom, an off-duty military police officer, drew a gun on the attacker.
CCTV footage captures nearby innocent civilians starting to flee the scene before Katia da Silva Sastre, who had been attending the event with her seven-year-old daughter, quickly intervened.
The off-duty officer barely had a second to think, but rather than panic at the immediate danger, she was able to stay level-headed and devise a plan.
Pulling out a pistol, the mother aimed it directly at Moreira who then fell to the floor in clear agony. Meanwhile, surrounding parents bundle their children into cars and flee.
Moreira writhed around on the tarmac in pain as the 42-year-old mother casually collected his gun from the middle of the road.
