An off-duty officer is be hailed a hero, while some say he put his child at risk. Surveillance video captured the moment when two armed robbers entered a store and an off-duty Sao Paulo police officer acted fast.

The video shows the officer firing his weapon at the two suspects with one hand, and carrying his child in the other. The officer is seen shooting multiple times before checking down the aisle and then handing the child off to a woman who was crouched down between the gunfire. 

The two suspects were pronounced dead at the scene.
