A criminal was shot dead by a civilian police officer after attempting to rob a jeweler located on Coronel José Monteiro street in the center of São José dos Campos (89 km from São Paulo).
According to reports, two armed thugs would have entered the jewelry store just minutes before the policeman arrived with his wife.
According to the images of the security camera of the internal circuit of the establishment (see video below published by the Civil Police), when the couple arrives and approaches the entrance of the jewelry store, one of the criminals leaves and waits for his accomplice.
Then the second man appears in the images and tries to surrender the couple, but the policeman quickly draws his gun and gets shots on the assailant who does not resist the wounds and was apparently killed instantly. The other bandit was able to flee.
The officer who was not on duty and his wife were not injured during the action. The dead criminal was 29 years old, convicted of robbery and outlawed. The case was registered at the Civil Police station of São José dos Campos.
