Off-duty Brazilian cop saves hostage with pinpoint accurate snap shot (VIDEO)

A bad guy is in critical condition after an off-duty Brazilian police officer shot him at near point blank range.

The bad guy put a gun to a victim’s head, using him as a human shield. The off-duty police officer threw up his hands in “surrender,” but surreptitiously bladed his stance and prepared to draw his firearm in the process, LiveLeak reports.

When the bad guy looked away, the police officer drew his gun and fired two shots, missing the victim by mere inches. Both rounds found their target and the hostage was freed.

The bad guy was transported to an area hospital where he was listed in critical condition.
