This makes a great case for no magazine ammunition limits since the victim goes through an entire magazine in a few short seconds saving his life as well as his wife’s.
A surveillance video clip shows a man driving into his garage when three armed men come in as the garage door is attempting to close.
The man, an off-duty police officer, was with his wife in the car.
Things turn violent quickly, as one of the armed robbers starts to open the man’s car door while he has a gun in his hand. Within a second, both men fire a shot. The victim seems to get his shot off just a split second before the armed robber.
The ‘victim’ fires several more rounds at the man, which hit his intended target. The other two men were further away and were not hit, but one was picked up by police later on. The armed robber who was shot died from his injuries.
The one thing that I don’t like about this video is when the man runs out of the garage towards the direction of the fleeing robbers instead of taking cover behind his vehicle. Even more so because the one robber had already fired a shot. Once he’s back out of the garage, he makes himself vulnerable again.
Take cover, close the garage door, call police. Wait. He is the police! Talk about a bad break for the bad guys.
Aside from that, this man did all that he could to defend himself and the other person that was with him. Even before the bad guy tried to open his car door, our ‘victim’ was ready with firearm in hand.
Here’s the original article translation from : http://www.correiodeuberlandia.com.br/cidade-e-regiao/homem-morre-em-tentativa-de-assalto-a-policial-civil-na-zona-oeste/
A 32-year-old man was killed after trying to rob the house of a civilian police in the Garden Patricia neighborhood in the west of Uberlândia. According to the case record, Eliseu Santos Paulo and two other men approached the victim as she entered the home garage, accompanied by the wife. Seeing that one of the bandits was armed, the officer took aim and shot the man who was trying to steal it.There was exchange of fire, and the bandits fled towards Pampulha neighborhood, on the east side of the city.
A neighbor called the Military Police (PM), which located the bad guys in the Integrated Service Unit (IAU) of Pampulha. Eliseu Santos Paul died to reach the health unit and the other two fled. One of them, 18, was found and arrested at the scene. The weapons used were seized and forwarded to the duty station.
