Courageous Katia Sastre shortly stepped in and pulled out her service gun taking

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.

Dramatic security footage shows a suspect named as Elivelton Neves Moreira, 21, approaching the crowd with a gun outside a private school in Sao Paulo.

On May 12 Katia da Silva Sastre, 42, a mother of two, was waiting to pick up her children from the Colégio Ferreira Master school in Sao Paolo, Brazil, when a man dressed in shorts and a dark hooded sweatshirt charged toward her and other parents with a pistol in his right hand.

Parents caught up in the violent scene fled with their children- who had been attending a Mother's Day celebration at the school in Suzano ahead of the event on May 13. Local reports indicated that the man was taken to a nearby hospital, but died of the gunshot wound.


Ms da Silva Sastre has been commended for her actions despite the "regrettable" outcome. "She immobilizes the boy and calls the [emergency services]".

Sastre, a mother of two girls 7 and 2 years, were awarded, which was awarded to her during the ceremony the mayor of são Paulo Marcio frança.

"I went earlier to the 4th BAEP in the east of Sao Paulo to honor a very special mother: Corporal Katia Sastre". As he was lying on the ground, she walked over and kicked the gun away before using her foot to place him in a face-down stance. "Her courage and precision saved mothers and children, yesterday at the door of a school", he wrote.

"I just thought about defending the mums, the children, my own life and my daughters", Sastre said. "It was a flawless procedure from a technical point of view".
