Shocking footage has surfaced showing an off-duty police officer in Brazil fatally shoots two suspects during a raid on a pharmacy while he was holding a baby boy in his arms.

Sergeant Rafael Souza entered the Bifarma in the city of Campo Limpo Paulista, Brazil with his wife and their son to purchase medicine on Saturday when armed men raced in.

The dramatic scenes were recorded on CCTV.

While the clerk was tending to his wife, two criminals with hoods on and firearms barged in so they could rob the pharmacy.

According to the Daily Mail, one of the suspects, 24-year-old Jefferson Alves pointed his gun at Sergeant Souza, who told the man he was a police officer.

Sergeant Souza said that the suspect was going to shoot him, so he reacted.

He drew his gun and shot one of the robbers at point-blank range before he went after the other man.

His wife shouted as she reached out for the baby while hiding below shelves.

Sergeant Souza handed the baby to her before the footage cut out.
