Mom kills gunman who tries to rob kids at school

Armed man charges at mothers with kids until one mom whips out her concealed gun and fires away

Nearly immediately, 42-year-old Katia da Silva Sastre pulled out her weapon from her handbag and fired three rounds into his chest and leg. Moreira's first bullet did not hit any victims and his gun locked during the second.

A would-be robber in Brazil picked the wrong target in Sao Paulo.

Sastre is seen on the CCTV footage from May 12 drawing her own pistol and firing multiple shots, dropping the man to the pavement.

The man, who has been identified as 21-year-old Elivelton Neves Moreira, lunged towards the crowd with a gun outside a private school in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

"Katia didn't know if he was going to react by shooting at the children, the mums or the headteacher who was at the school entrance". Silva Sastre reportedly shot him three times. He was hit in the chest and leg as he tried to fight back.

"The first shot ricocheted and got lost".

Sastre, a mother of two girls, has worked on the police force for 20 years. At the time of the incident, her kids and the other mothers were all she could think about.

In dramatic scenes outside a school in Sao Paulo an armed robber's attempt to hold up mothers outside a school backfired lethally when a fearless off-duty cop emerged from the frightened crowd and gunned him down.

"'I just thought about defending the mums, the children, my own life and my daughter's", she added. She had shown "dexterity, technique and courage", he said.

The suspect later succumbed to his wounds, dying as he was being rushed to the hospital, according to the Daily Mirror.

Ms Sastre has since been honoured by the city's Governor, Marcio Franca, for her quick-thinking valour.
