Gunman Attempting To Rob Families Outside School Is Shot By Waiting Mum

Gunman Attempting To Rob Families Outside School Is Shot By Waiting Mum

When a gunman in Brazil attempted to rob and potentially harm families outside of a school during a Mother's Day event, he ended up with a gunshot wound from one of the moms, who was an off-duty military police officer.

The suspect fired his weapon, a.38 caliber revolver, once into the crowd. She is also married to a police lieutenant, the Daily Mail reports.

The governor of São Paulo Márcio França described the mother-of-two as "very brave" and her reaction to the gunman as "technically perfect" in a video uploaded on Facebook.

We know first-hand that censorship against conservative news is real.

Mr. França, who is seeking re-election, decorated Corporal Katia da Silva Sastre, 42.

She was honored by the governor of Sao Paolo, Marcio Franca, for her bravery and protecting the lives of the mothers and their children.

"The first shot ricocheted and got lost".

"She pushed the children out of the way and approached the thief". His second shot jammed in his firearm, at which point Sastre has already stepped back from the line of fire and was able to kick off his weapon.

The incident happened on Saturday in Suzano, Sao Paulo, during an event to mark Mother's Day in the USA.

The officer, who has two decades of experience in the military police, said she wanted to shoot the man at a close range and neutralize him before he could hurt anyone. According to public security specialists, the decoration of Officer Sastre may send a misleading message to both the police force and to society. "Her courage and precision saved mothers and children, yesterday at the door of a school", he wrote on Twitter, as translated by Google.
