That's when 42-year-old Katia Sastre decided to act. The off-duty police officer pulled out her own gun and fired at the robber three times, hitting him in the chest and leg.

He fell to the ground but pointed his weapon at Sastre. According to the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo, he fired at least one bullet before his gun jammed. “The first shot ricocheted off something,” Sastre's husband, Andre Alves, told the paper. “On his second attempt to fire, his weapon jammed. Thankfully she was faster than he was, because when a thug discovers he’s being confronted by a police officer, he shoots to kill.”

The man dropped his weapon, at which point Sastre was able to roll him onto his stomach and pin him down until police arrived.

The whole scene was caught on the school's video security system.

Sao Paulo was once one of the most violent cities in the world. But the area has seen a dramatic drop in crime over the past decade. The homicide rate has declined from a high of 52.5 per 100,000 in 1999 to 6.1 per 100,000 today, about five times lower than the national average, according to the World Economic Forum.
