Off-duty Brazilian police officer shoots two robbers dead while holding his baby with his other hand.

A shocking CCTV video has emerged of an off-duty Brazilian police officer that managed to thwart an armed robbery by killing two men with his gun while holding his child in his other hand.

Sgt. Rafael Souza was in a pharmacy in Campo Limpo Paulista with his wife and their young son to buy medicine on Saturday afternoon. While the clerk was attending to his wife, two burglars with hoods and a gun barged in to rob the store.
The shocking scenes were caught on the CCTV video in the state of São Paulo.
According to reports, one of the suspects, Jefferson Alves, 24, a resident of Campo Limpo, allegedly pointed the gun at Sgt Souza, who identified himself as a police officer.
He pulled his gun and shot one of the suspects at point-blank range.

After, he proceeded to pursue and shoot the other assailant, identified as Italo Creato, 22.
He then hands his child over to his wife, who is screaming and taking cover behind a display of products before the video cut out.

Paramedics later arrived but pronounced both men dead at the scene. Mr. Souza, of the 49th Metropolitan Battalion in São Paulo, told investigators he shot at the men because he believed they would have opened fire first after he identified himself as a police officer.
Forensics investigators are currently examining the weapons seized.
What would you have done if you are in the place of Sgt Souza?
