An off-duty military police officer’s trip to the pharmacy with his family turned into a deadly shootout in Brazil over the weekend, reports CBS News.
Sgt. Rafael Souza went to buy medicine with his wife and young son late Saturday afternoon when two armed, hooded men stormed the business outside Sao Paulo, Britain’s Independent newspaper reported, citing a Brazilian radio station.
One of the men pointed a gun at Souza, who drew his own weapon, the Independent reported.
