There was a criminal holding a gun and this looked like it was headed toward being a terrible situation when out of nowhere a hero in a pink shirt saved the day.
This thug found out that these "victims" were not going to be the easy prey that he hoped for.
This weekend surfaced over the weekend. There was an armed thug with a gun who pulledit out of a group of mothers near a school. It's pretty clear the criminal decided that this group of women on Mother's Day weekend would be defenseless, but he couldn't have been more wrong.
Watch - Hero in a pink shirt saves the day
Per Western Journal:
According to a translation of the Brazilian news source Globo, the woman in pink was the mother of a girl who attended the nearby school. Unfortunately for the perpetrator, she was also an off-duty military police officer.
“According to the PM (military police), the police officer saw the move and heard a woman saying it was robbery,” Globo reported in Portuguese. “At this point, the police officer moved away, pulled out the gun and fired three times at the suspect.”
The mother’s shots hit their mark. Two bullets were fired by the suspect, but he thankfully missed both times.
In the aftermath of the shooting, the woman — who was later identified as Kátia da Silva Sastre — took cover behind a vehicle, then moved in and disarmed the thug while still keeping him at gunpoint.
Globo reported that although the criminal survived the initial encounter and was treated by an ambulance service, he later died from his injuries.
It's good to see a story with a happy ending. These women look like they were headed for big trouble when a hero saved the day. A hero in a pink shirt, at that!
