Brazil- A 29-year-old robber was shot in the back twice remains hospitalized at the Hospital do Pronto Socorro João XXIII ( HPS ) after attempting a robbery at a cell phone store in Bairro Castelo , in Belo Horizonte.
The case is seen as self-defense , and one of the proofs is the video recorded by the store's camera system. The footage clearly shows that the man enters the store, pretending that his cell phone is in trouble. He hands it over to the merchant, who, after checking the device, returns it to the man.
As soon as he picks up the device, he pulls out a revolver and announces the robbery. The criminal goes behind the counter and the merchant walks away. He picks up a few things and heads out of the store. At that moment he is surprised by the merchant, who is in possession of a gun, makes three shots and the assailant falls on the sidewalk as he is struck by two in front of the store.
