This is the terrifying moment a gang of bandits – one wearing a Joker mask – shot an armored guard in the chest as he and his partner were delivering cash to an ATM at a supermarket in Brazil.
An employee was standing behind the guard who was loading the cash machine located near the entrance of the store in Sao Paolo while another guard stood outside when the suspects ambushed them Tuesday morning.
The guard near the entrance noticed the gun-wielding thieves, including the one wearing a mask of the DC comic book supervillain, running out of a car and pulled out his weapon. But the suspects immediately started firing and struck the guard in the chest and leg as he dove to the ground.
Fortunately, the guard was wearing a bulletproof vest, but his ordeal was not over.
After the robbers swiped the money, they used the wounded guard as a human shield to run out of the store and make their escape.
‘I’ve never experienced a scene like this. It’s a movie scene, you can’t believe something like this will happen to you,’ a neighborhood resident told TV TEM. ‘Everything was normal, until a black car arrived with three individuals entering the market and shooting. They looked professional.’
