A military policewoman was shot to death on New Year’s Eve in the municipality of Pinhais, in the metropolitan region of Curitiba, Parana, Brazil.
24 year old Bárbara Aline Gonçalves da Rocha was reportedly meeting with relatives in a shop located on the João Leopoldo Jacomel Highway in the Maria Antonieta neighborhood, when an armed assailant asked for her service weapon. Being a female, she handed him the gun without hesitation. The assailant took her gun also without hesitation, and popped two rounds into her, striking her once in the face and once in the chest. The policewoman died on the spot.
The thief reportedly arrived at the scene with an accomplice in a Fiat Uno. The accomplice stayed in the getaway vehicle, while the gunman stepped out to deal with the female.
I’m surprised her double chin didn’t deflect the shot in the face.
